This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

TO OUR READERS 

/;/ presenting to our esteetned clientile and the students of the Science of Numismatics generally the first number of our " Numismatic Circular " 
we believe we are supplying a need felt in England and also elsewhere y because no paper essaying to furnish its readers with current numismatic news 
and at the same time putting before them a carefully prepared catalogue embracing all series of coins and m:dals his hith.rto appeared in this country, 
aliJxfugh for sotne years the Continent has furnished a few periodicals of such a character ^ which have been duly appreciated. 

It is proposed to edit this Circular on the following lines : 

A monthly paper containing the latest and most reliable and interesting numismatic news in short paragraphs ; notes of interest on rare or 
unpublished coins; extracts {original or translated) from the Numismatic periodicals of Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Swit:^erland, 
Italy, America, &c. ; notices and critiques of new books and articles relative to the science, and a record of the work and progress of English, 
Contimntal and American Numismatic Societies; notices of Sales and Finds, 

Incorporated with the above-named it is proposed to issue a descriptive list of coins and medals (Jor sale at strictly moderate prices) embracing those 
of all countries of the world, of both ancient and tnodern times, carefully catalogued and arranged so as to form as a whole a very useful and fairly 
complete priced catalogue, which it is believed will be of special use to collectors who may desire to add to their cabinets , to Museums making or 
completing collections of special series, and lastly to those who, without desiring to purchase are nevertheless interested in the market values of coins 
and medals. 

As it is intended to issue this paper under cost-price, we shall feel obliged if numismatists and others will so far aid us in return by forwarding for 
gratuitous insertion any reliable notes or queries concerning special or unpublished coins or medals of which they may be cognisant — such, and any 
otljer numismatic news of interest and value will be gratefully received and acknowledged. 

Answers to queries will be duly inserted. SPINK & SON.

NOTES ON COINS and MEDALS OF SPECIAL INTEREST 

Three fine and rare Greek Coins Amateurs of Greek coins will 

be interested in the description of the following rarities, which lately 
came into our hands. They are as follows : 

1° ORRESCII Macedoniae. iR. Octadrachm (Graeco- Asiatic 
standard). Before circ. B. C. 500. Weight : 404 grs. — Obv. 
ORR E I KlOkl* Naked man, in kausia, holding two spears, con- 
ducting two oxen to right; in field to right, flower : border of dots. 

— ^. Incuse quadripartite square. — Vide Br. Mus. Cat. n° i. 
The coin is in fine preservation, though by oxidation and remo- 
val of the oxide it has lost about 40 grains of its weight. 

2° ARCADIA. Federal Coinage. iR. Stater. Circ. B. C. 370-300. 
Weight : 248 grs. — Obv. Laureate head of Zeus Lykaeos, of fine 
Greek art. — ^.. ARK in monogram. Pan, adult, with human form, 
nude, seated to left on rock which he covers with his chlamys, 
breast facing, head three quarters to right holding pedum in his right 
hand. At his feet the syrinx, and on the rock OAYM, initials of the 
name of the artist, Olympiodoros. 

The reverse of this coin is superb and the beautiful design could 
be taken as one of the most wonderful examples of fine art exhibited 
upon an antique coin. — Vide Photiadis Pachas sale, 1890, n° iiS4- 

3° ELIS. iR. Stater. Circ. B. C. 312-271. Weight: 187,6 grs. 

— Obv. Laureate head of Zeus to right, in high relief, of fine style 
and in an absolutely perfect state of preservation. — ^. Eagle to right 
contending with serpent. 

This coin is not of a very rare type, but it excels in beauty and 
condition; perhaps the finest of this series we have seen, and the col- 
lector, who now possesses this wonderful specimen may well boast 
of it as the gem of a magnificent collection. 



A UNIQUE PENNY OF AELFRED THE GREAT 




That the Romans considerably influenced the Coinage of England 
iS too well known to need enlarging upon, although in connexion 



with the subject before us it may not be out of place here to men- 
tion a gold sceat struck probably between 600 and 750 A. D. This 
coin is alluded to and illustrated in the valuable catalogue on the 
Anglo-Saxon series of coins in the British Museum — alsobyKenyon 
(Gold coins of England) and other authorities. The rev. of this 
little coin (two busts supporting an orb between them, above 
which are a head and two wings) is evidently a close copy of 
the solidi of Magnus Maximus, struck in London, or of those 
of Valentinian of the same type, struck at Treves. Soon after the 
death of Magnus Maximus, the Romans quitted the Country for 
good, although doubtless for a long while afterwards the Roman 
Coinage was still much in use, if indeed it did not furnish the 
chief portion of the currency. However that may be, the same late 
Roman type is found introduced upon a penny of Ceolwlf II, the 
last King of Mercia, who reigned, more as a vassal of the Danes 
than with any teal power, in 874. Almost at the same period (872) 
Alfred began his reign in Wessex and subsequently subdued Mercia 
from which Ceolwlf II had been previously deposed by the Danes. 
This connexion between the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia is 
illustrated in an interesting manner by the recent coming to light of 
a penny of Alfred bearing precisely the same Victory-type of reverse 
as the one issued by Ceolwlf II, differing on the rev. only in the name 
of the moneyer. The following is a description of this unique penny : 
— Obv. +AELFRED RIX (sic) ANDLn+ Bust to the right, dia- 
demed , with long queue as seen on the busts of the late Roman 
Emperors. Rev. CENRED TTONETA. Two figures seated, within 
beaded square, holding a globe, supporting a half-length figure of 
Victory facing. Beneath the globe, a palm. Weight : 19 1/2 grains. 

It may be mentioned that the moneyer's name is not to be found 
in the published Hsts of Alfred 's moneyers, nearly 200 in number. 
The name however occurs as one of ifethelbearht's moneyers, but 
whether he is the same must be a matter for conjecture, though it 
should be noted however that upon iEthelred succeeding his brother 
iEthelbearht in the year 866 the name of CENRED does not appear 
upon the coins of the new kin^ and it is therefore possible this 
moneyer (whom it may be conceded was probably aware of the issue 
of the Victory-type penny of Ceolwlf II) was employed by Alfred. 

The reasons which actuated the king in issuing a coin of this 
(for England) unusual type are not perhaps easy to ascertain. It 
would be agreeable to think that the reverse signifies one of his 
numerous victories (such as that of 878) over Iiis powerful and 
predatory foes the Danes. Alfred was an enlightened and intelligent 
king, and therefore that he should wish to perpetuate his victories 
in an unmistakable manner on one type of his numerous coins 
seems reasonable enough, especially as the Romans long before had 
been constantly reminding the world through their coins of their 
success and prowess in battle. It should also be pointed out that 
from the style of the work this curious piece was issued about the 
time of Alfred's greatest triumphs over the Danes , or at any rate 
previous to 890, about which period began the large issue bearing a 
small cross for the type of the obverse instead of the bust of the king 
as formerly. It remains to be noticed that the introduction of the 
title ANGLO upon this penny (but rarely seen upon the coins ot 
Alfred) would also tend to prove that his kingdom had advanced 
both in extent and security, which were indeed actual facts by the 
year 880, when Alfred possessed all the kingdom of Wessex and a 
large portion of Mercia as well. 

This unique penny is now in possession of Mr. H. Montagu 
F. S. A., in whose unrivalled collection is also an example of tne 
equally rare coin, before alluded to, of Ceowlf II, bearing the same 
interesting type of reverse.

AN UNPUBLISHEB GOLD MEDAL OF MARIE- ANTOINETTE. 



Obv. M. ANTONIA ARC. AVST. LVDOVIC. FRANCIiE

double cornucopiae on left arm and offering libation with right hand. 
In exergue: NVPT. CELEBR. VIEN. PROCVL. FERDINAND. 
A.A.XIX.APR.MDCCLXX in three lines. 

This fine medal, a chef-d'oeuvre of the celebrated Austrian artist 
Widcman, is the very piece which was given to Queen Marie- 
Antoinette, on the day of her marriage by proxy in Vienna, on the 
19**" of April 1770 and w^hich was used by her as a passport for her 
journey to France. 

The following copy of a letter from the last possessor gives the 
pedigree of this interesting medal : 

** Cher Monsieur, — Voici les renseignements que vous me 
demandez au sujet de la piece de manage (juillet 1788) de mon 
arriere grand'mfere, la marquise de Mirabeau. EUe lui a et^ donn^e 
par la reine Marie-Antoinette, qui 6tait sa marraine de noce en 
mSme temps que le roi son parrain. Tous deux, d'ailleurs, ainsi que 
Madame Elisabeth et les trois princes freres de Louis XVI ont sign^ au 
contrat de cette meme arriere grand*m^re qui 6tait M"*" de Robien. 
— La medaille est la propre medaille de la reine ou plutot sa piece 
de manage donnee pour servir de piece de manage i sa filleule de 
noce. Elle a servi de piice de mariage i ma mere, n^e Riquetti de 
Mirabeau, marine au comte de Kerstrat, et ensuite i ma soeur ain^e, 
la baronne d'Herpent, i qui elle appartient encore aujourd'hui et qui 
signe cette attestation avec moi. Le contrat de mariage de notre 
arriere grand'mere, la marquise de Mirabeau, est d^pos^ chez 
M. Plique, notaire, 29, rue Croix-des-Petits-Champs, i Paris. On y 
trouvera toutes les signatures dont je vous ai parl^. 

La medaille, comme vous le voyez, a eti transmise de p^re en 
fils sans avoir quitti la famille. Je dis de p^re en fils, je devrais 
dire de m^re en fille, puisque depuis mon grand-pere il n'y a 
plus eu de posteritt^ mAle. Mes trois oncles, treres de ma m^re, 
sont morts sans autre post^riti qu'une seule fille, M™*-^ la comtesse 
de Martel, plus connue sous le nom de Gyp et qui est notre unique 
cousine germaine. Vous savez, d'ailleurs, qu'elle a obtenu du Conseil 
d'Etat la permission de faire porter le nom de Mirabeau a son fils 
ami. Veuillez agrier, etc. 

(Signed) A. de Saint-Vidal, n^e de Treourret de Kerstrat. 

(Do) Baronne G. d'Herpent, nie de Treourret de Kerstrat. " 

The Gazette de Fratice of the 11 May 1770 (p. 149) is the only 
official record left of this fine medal, which, as will be gathered from 
the above narrative not only is of great historical interest, but is also 
a most valuable & beautiful memento of the unfortunate Queen of 
France, the noblest victim amongst so many who met with a tragic 
death under the first Revolution. — It may be added that we have 
this medal for disposal.

woodcuts, many of which are of Medals of quite exceptional rarity;

EXTRACTS & NOTES OF INTEREST. 

Mr. C. F. Keary, in the book lately pubHshed by the British 
Museum on *' Coins and Medals ", proposes the following division of 
the numismatic history of Christian Europe, which we think will 
be worth the notice of our readers : 

*' Period L Transition between the Roman and the true mediae- 
val : let us say, from the deposition of Romulus Augustulus (A. D. 
476) to the accession of Charlemagne (A. D. 768). 

Period II. From the rise of the new currency which was inaugurated 
by the house of Heristal, and which attained its full extension under 
Charles the Great, for all the time during which this currency 
formed practically the sole coinage of Western Europe. 

Period III. From the re-introduciion of a gold coinage into 
Western Europe, which we may date from the striking of the Fiorino 
d'oro in Florence, in 1252 ; to the full developement of Renaissance 
Art upon coins, about 1450. 

Period IV. From this year, 1450, to the end of the Renaissance 
Era, in 1600. 

Period V. That of modern coinage, from A. D. 1600 to our own 
day. " 

Amongst the many interesting pieces described in the Revue 
numismatique, 2^ livr., under the title '^ Medailles et Amulettes i 
l^gendes hibraiques, conser\'6cs au Cabinet des Medailles et Antiques 
de la Bibliotheque Nationale " by Moi'se Schwab, w^e would men- 
tion the following which are not infrequently seen : 

1. Obv. In the centre, head of Christ; to left 1U?'' (Jesus); to 
right N, abbreviated frqm ^y\^ (Lord). 

VjL. In five lines, the w^ords : 

^n 1 ncy D*i I Nown DiS I ^2 Ni "jSn I n^ca, the Messiah King is 
come in peace and in the midst of the nations (?) '' He is risen. *' 

2. Obv. Head of Christ without any legend. 
V^. In four lines : 

HM^ I ni\r^ nsr: | :n;r^ in^ | dix% '' Jesus, the Nazarene, anointed 
of God and of men together. '' 

'* These medals ","says King in his work on '' Early Christian 
Numismatics ", '* may be ascribed to some Christian artist acquainted 
with Hebrew, or to some Jewish convert, w4io thought that it would 
be pleasing to pilgrims to the Holy Places to bring home from the 
land that Our Lord inhabited a coin exhibiting His face. Hence such 
pieces w^ere executed, and inscribed in Hebrew^ so that they might 
excite greater veneration in the eyes of the unlearned, and presen- 
ting the appearance of antiquit>', might realise a better price. "

Monthly Numismatic Circular

The reverses of Roman Colonial Coins offer an immense variety 
of interesting types, which have thrown much light on ancient 
history and mythology. One of those types, which occurs on some 
coins of Apamea (Phrygiae) struck by the emperors Severus, Macri- 
nus & Philip Sen., has been lately the subject of a controversy 
between authorities on the Numismatics of the Ancients. It is thus 
described in Mionnet IV. p. 234, n'' 251 : 

^. GniArflMOOGTOY.APTGMA.r.AnAMGnN. Deucalion and 
Pyrrha, to left, half their bodies visible standing within a square 
chest, floating on water, inscribed NOG; in front a male and a 
female figure, raising the right hand; above the chest or boat, a 
ravcn, and also a dove flying, carrying an oHve-branch in its beak. 
JE io|. R\ F. O. 

Mr. B. V. Head in his ** Historia Numorum " says : ** This 
remarkable type, evidently embodies the legend of the Noachian 
deluge, which may have been grafted upon the story of the flood of 
Deukalion by the Jewish or Christian element in the population of 
the city. " (See Madden Num. Chron. 1866, p. 207 sqq.) 

But M. Babelon points out that there is no tradition of the 
Deluge, peculiar to tne Phrygian race and that the type of this coin 
does not relate to any myth of Apameia but is owed altogether to 
the innovation of the new^ faith of Christianity in that town.

THE DEFENCE OF ANHOLT IN MARCH, 1811 

There are now on view (and for sale) at Messrs. Spink and 
Son*s, the well-known Medallists, some relics which commemorate 
one of the most gallant defences on record, and should appeal 
specially to the Corps of Royal Marines. There can have been but 
few engagements on such a scale, in which the honour of the Bri- 
tish flag has been upheld solely by Marines, and yet it is probable 
that the majority of the members of the Corps have never henrd of 
the defence of Anholt*. 

The principal relic, w^hich the writer has seen through the 
courtesy of Messrs. Spink & Son , is a presentation sword with a 
magnificently chased gilt scabbard, and a blade inlaid with gold, on 
which is the following inscription : — '' Presented by the Offi- 
cers, Non-Commissioned Officers, Gunners and Privates of the 

* The Marine Artillery should be excepted, as there is in the Mess at Eastney a 
quaint picture, the work of Lieut. Turnbull, mentioned in this account, dcprcting 
the repulse of the Danes in this memorable engagement.

Royal Marines and Royal Marine Artillery in garrison at Anholt, to 
heir esteemed Governor, Captain James Wilkts Maurice, of the 
Royal Navy, in token of their admiration of his personal bravery 
in the battle of the 27*** March, 181 1, and as a grateful memorial 
for his Uberal , forbearing and kind consideration of their feelings 
<luring his government. ' 

Besides the sword are to be seen Captain Maurice's Medal (the 
Naval General Serviced with the clasp for '* Anholt, 27 March, 
181 1 ", two seals used by him (one bearing an impression of the 
Diatnotid Rock) and two letters, one from himself (signed) announ- 
cing the loss of the Diamond Rock, and the other from Lord Nelson 
(signed), complimenting him on his splendid defence. 

The defence of the Diamond Rock, where, six years before. Captain 
Maurice had already gained such distinction, concerns the Corps 
less intimately than the repulse of the Danes at Anholt in March , 
i8u. 

The garrison of the island, which we had captured from the 
Danes in 1809, consisted, according to James's Naval History, of 
350 Royal Marines and 31 Royal Marine Artillery. The Marines 
were under the command of Captain (with local rank of Major) 
E^obert Torrens, and the whole were under Captain Maurice, R. N., 
the Governor of the island, whose second in conmiand was Lieut. 
H. L. Baker. R. N. The following Marine Officers are mentioned in 
•Captain Maurice's despatch, but it is not known whether any others 
were present at the time : — 

Royal Marine Artillery — Lieut, and Adjt. R. C. Steele (Com- 
.manding the Howitzer Brigade) and Lieut. Bezant. Royal Marines 
— Capt. Torrens (Commandant of Garrison), Lieut, and Quarter- 
master Fisher, Lieuts. Stewart, Gray, Ford, Jellico, Atkinson, 
•Curiayne and Turnbull (Commanding the Light Company). 

The island was attacked just before daybreak on the 27*** March, 
181 1, by a Danish flotilla of 18 gun boats**, accompanied by 
transports, the whole force, according to Capt. Maurice, consisting 
>of nca'*ly 4.000 men***, owing to darkness and thick fog the landing 
was effected on the south snore without opposition, and Capt. 
Maurice, on arriving at the hill above the beach, found his force of 
200 men and 4 howitzers so outnumbered and outflanked on both 
sides by the invaders that he deemed it prudent to retreat, to avoid 
being cut off" from the forts. A body of 200 Danish Seamen 
followed, but were compelled to retire to the beach by the heavy 
fire trom the Massareene and Yorke batteries. 

Meanwhile the main body of the enemy had crossed the island 
and taken up a position on the northern shore, and a body of 150 
men was sent forward by the Danish Commander to commence the 
attack on the forts. This force, though advancing bravely and 
rallying frequently, w^as at length beaten back, and, the Danish 
seamen having by this time succeeded in bnnging up a field piece, 
which enfiladed the Massareene battery, a general assault on the 
works was ordered. 

In spite of the support from the Danish gun-boats the attack was 
unsuccessful. The discharges of grape and musketry from the 
British batteries were irresistible, and strew^ed the ground with 
dead and wounded, amongst the former being the three senior 
Danish Officers. The discomfiture of the enemy was completed by 
the appearance on their flank of the Anholt Schooner, a small 
armed vessel attached to the island, manned by volunteers, and 
commanded by Lieut. Baker, R. N. (with whom was Lieut. Turn- 
bull). Finding the sandhills no protection against the fire of the 
schooner, and both advance and retreat impossible, the Danes 
offered to surrender on terms; but the Governor would accept of 
nothing less than an unconditional surrender, to which the Danes, 
after some deliberation, acceded. 

By this time the Danish gunboats, being much galled by the fire 
•of the batteries, and observing the approach of British 32 gun fri- 
•gate Tartar, got under weigh and stood to the westward, and the 
-column of the enemy on the south shore, finding their retreat no 
longer covered by the flotilla, surrendered. The remainder of the 
.assailants fled to the west shore, w^here their re-embarkation was 

*• Each of these gunboats mounted two long 24 or 18 pounders, and 4 brass 
howitzers, and had a crew of from 60 to 70 men. 

*** It should be stated that the Danish official account puts the strength of the 
troops at 1.000 men, including an organised body of 2C0 seamen, and Capt. 
Brenton gives the number of troops and seamen at 1.590, which number James 
jurcepts as a fair estimate. 



assured by the presence of 14 gunboats, and Capt. Maurice, having 
only 40 men (with 4 howitzers) at his disposal, the remainder 
being in charge of the prisoners, did not feel justified in offering any 
opposition. 

Thus after a close combat of 4 | hours, the enemy received a most 
complete and decisive defeat, with a loss of 4 officers, and 30 to 
40 men killed, 22 wounded, exclusive of a large number carried to 
the boats, and 16 oflicers and 504 men taken prisoners. In addition 
they lost 3 pieces of cannon, 484 muskets, 470 swords, and a large 
amount of ammunition and shell. The loss of the garrison was 
2 killed and 30 wounded (including Capt. Torrens). 

The retreating Danes were pursued by the Tartar and the Shel- 
drake (a 1 6-gun brig-sloop), which had reached the island the night 
before, but had been too far to leeward to assist the garrison. The 
latter captured two and sank a third gun vessel, while the Tartar ^ 
after capturing two transports, was compelled, owung to shoal 
water, to haul off and discontinue the chase. 

C apt. Torrens was gazetted to a brevet majority on the i" June, 
1811. 

It is hoped that the above short account of this brilliant action 
may be of sufficient interest to stimulate some generous reader to 
purchase these relics and present them to a Corps which, while it 
nas surely the highest title to them, would also certainly most 
appreciate them. 

Extract from " The Globe and Laurel ". 
I September 1892. 



ON 17th century tokens &C. 

f Between the years 1648 and 1679 great inconvenience was felt 
amongst the tradespeople of England and Ireland from the want ot 
small money. This need growing greater and not being met by the 
government of the day, gave rise to the illegal issue of coins by pri- 
vate individuals and in some instances by Corporations, Overseers 
&c., known generally as *' 17 **" Century Tokens ". Few of these 
pieces possess any claim to artistic merit, yet they form most inte- 
resting connecting links in history, and from them we are able to 
gather much concerning the manners, customs, dress, &c., of that 
eventful period. They are of copper or brass and issued nominally 
in the form of pennies, half-pennies, and farthings (their real value 
being about one third) stating the name of issuer and the place in 
which he or she lived. In some cases the calling of the issuer is 
given as Mercer, Grocer, Chandler, &c.; in others the arms of one of 
the great Companies as the Vintners, Ironmongers, Fruiterers, &c. 
Some give the name of the county as well as that of the town. It 
was also a common practice for a man to have his initials with that 
of his wife put upon his token. 

The following description of a coining apparatus for these 17 ^^ 
century tokens is copied from Mr Williamson's Edition of 
Boyne s work 1889, having appeared in the *' Gentleman's Maga- 
zine " of November 1757. 

^*The press consisted of four pieces of good oak, not less than four 
inches thick, and very strongly dove-tailed together. In the upper 
cross-piece was fastened an iron box with a female screw, through 
which there passed a stout iron screw of an inch or more in dia- 
meter, to the bottom of which was fixed one of the dies; whilst 
the other was received into a square hole made in the bottom cross- 
piece, where it lay very steady, as in a proper bed. The screw was 
wrought by hand, in the manner of a capstan, by means of four 
handles affixed to the top of it, of about nine inches long each. And 
thus after the copper was reduced to a proper thickness, shorn to a 
size, and commodiously rounded, many hundreds of halfpence 
might be coined, by two persons in a very short time, by a man 
we will suppose to ply the screw, and a woman or a boy to put on 
and take off the pieces. " 

In our list of colonial coins, in this number, will be found a piece 
to which we would draw special attention. It is the very rare Isle of 
Man penny of 1723 a similar piece to which wassold for € 7 : 10 : o 
in December 1890 when D*^ Clay's w^ell known collection was dis- 
persed. In '' Currency of the Isle of Man " (by Charles Clay M. D.) 
the coin is thus spoken of : — 

'* From its extreme scarcity and beauty, and from the fact of its not 
being recorded in the statutes as sanctioned by the laws, there is 
ever}- reason to believe that the pieces handed down to us , which

bear the date oi i7^3> were rather designs, or pattern pieces, on 
approval for island issue. At all event, the design, though it had 
some grave faults, was a great step in advaiice of numismatic excel- 
lence, and is very beautiful when compared with the rude issue 
of 1709 ". 

Among the English Commemorative medals enun-iered this month 
are many of great historical interest; those of the Elizabethan period 
being specially rich in great events. The struggles with the Papal 
party, the assistance rendered to the United Provinces enabling 
them to throw off the Spanish Yoke with all its cruelty and injus- 
tice, the defeat of the Armada and its destruction, &c., &c. On one 
medal (Assistance to the United Provinces) we have a severe satire 
on the Spanish, who are represeuted by two men reduced to such a 
state of distress as to be obliged to eat out of a manger with a horse 
and an ass. Another represents the Pope, bishops and other eccle- 
siastics falHng from heaven ; and a third gives a view of a stormy 
sea upon which isa fleet in distress. '* In 1596 EHzabeth despatched 
a fleet to Cadiz and destroyed an immense armament prepared for 
the invasion of England by Philip 11 who sustained damage to the 
amount of about 20^000.000 ducats. He rapidly formed another 
armament which sailed from Ferrol, but was overtaken by a violent 
storm off Cape Finisterre, when 40 vessels were wrecked and 5.000 
seamen drowned. " The last described medal with the legend 
QVID ME PERSEQVERIS (Why persecutest thou me) is an allu- 
sion to the latter part of the above extract. 



VARIA 



minea 



A gentleman, travelling on a journey, having a light gi 
I which he could not pass, gave it to his Irish servant and desired 
him to pass it upon the road. At night he asked him if he had pas- 
sed the guinea '* Yes, sir ", repHed Teague, '* but I was forced to 
be very sly; the people refused it at breakfast and at dinner; so, at 
a turnpike, where I had fourpence to pay, I whipped it in be- 
tween two halfpence, and the man put it into his pocket, and 
f never saw it. '* 

(From " Joe Miller in Motle>' ".) 



FINDS 

F. P. Weber Esq. gives a short notice in the **Numismatic Chro- 
nicle'* of a find of 703 small Roman copper coins, which has come 
into his possession. Amongst the pieces were a few unpublished 
types of Theodosius Magnus, ^L, CONCORDIA AVG or AVGGG 
Large cross and ? CONCORDIA AVGG. Rome seated facing; Aelia 
Flaccilla ^. SALVS REIPVBLICE, Victory to right; Honorius 
^. CONCORDIA AVG. or AVGGG Large cross; Arcadius. 
^ VICTORIA AVG, Two victories, &c. 

A trouvaille of eighty- three silver coins was made last May, near 
Vilvorde (Belgium). They are mostly vierlanders of Philippe le Bon 
and of Charles le T^miraire, and German pfennigs, struck by the 
archbishops of Cologne and Treves. The only rare piece is a grossus, 
of the type of S. Peter, of Sophie de Gleichen, abbess of Essen , in 
Westphalia. 

SALES 

On the 17 *** October and following days took place at Frankfurt 
a. M. the sale of the third part of Justizrath Reinmann's Cabinet. The 
valuable catalogue of this most wonderful collection will prove a 
standard work of the German numismatic series, worthy to be 
put on the same level with Madai and Schulthess-Rechberg. 

The numismatic library of the late collector w^as sold on the 
22. of same month together with a collection of Swiss coins and 
medals, the property of the late Carl von Hettlingen descendant of 
the famous Swiss artist and engraver Hedlinger. We have not yet 
heard the result of the sale but we strongly hope that the newly 
instituted Swiss national museum will have secured any unpossessed 
medal of this celebrated medallist. Sale conducted by Adolph Hess, 
7, Westendstrasse Frankfurt a. M. 

A collection of Conventionsthalers, Doppelthalers and Thalers of 
the 18. & 19. Century has also been sold at Frankfurt a. M. on the

GOLD COINS ATTRIBUTED TO THE ICENI 

The following coins of the Iceni formed part of the well- 
known Find in or near Freckenham in Suffolk in the year 1885. 
Of this hoard the large number of 30 (out of a total of about 
90) came into our hands and from thence passed into the posses- 
sion of Mr. H, Montagu F. S. A., who in an able article, 
published in the Numismatic Chronicle, Scries III, vol. VI, has 
fully described and illustrated (pi. II) the above-named coins and 
others of the same Find which he was able to secure. The 
pieces now described are therefore of especial interest to collec- 
tors. See also EvanSy Suppl. p. $78 et seqq.

This coin contradicts Hawkins, who remarks (p. 75) ** that 
iEthelred's name is never spelt AEILRED. as on these coins 
(i.e.thoseofEANREDand AEILRED conjointly), except upon 
some of those where the name Eanred, a same variety of that 
name, occurs on the other side it may then be doubted whether 
the associate of Eanred be in fact his son iEthelred, or some 
other prince with a nearly similar name ".

and the publishers, Messrs Longmans, Green & Co, we reprint the follow-

A PLEA FOR THIRTY-SHILLING PIECES 

At a time when the question of the designs for a new coinage has 
so recently been occupying the attention of the Government, and 
to some extent that of the public, the further question whether the 
various denominations of the coins now in circulation are all that 
could be desired for public convenience and economy is one that 
merits consideration. 

With regard to our bronze coinage little need be said; in size, 
material , and resistance to wear it ranks fairly high , though in 
design, both of obverse and reverse, there is plenty of room for 
improvement. A nickel coinage, though less bulky than bronze, has 
the great disadvantage of being readily confounded with the coinage 
of higher value in silver; so that on the whole, bronze seems to be 
the preferable metal. 

In considering our silver coinage, we may leave the double 
florin or four-shilling piece out of the question, as it is not proposed 
that any more coins of that denomination should be struck. 

We have then the crown, the half-crown, the florin, shilling, 
sixpence, and threepence; in all, coins of six different denominations. 
Of all these, the one that could best be spared is the florin, which 
is simply a double shilling, and does not comprise any of the 
smaller denominations of coins in its value. It is, however, of 
some convenience where large sums of silver coin have to be told, 
though it has not the great advantage which the half-crown 
possesses of combining a sixpence with the shillings, and thus in 
many cases enabling a payment involving an odd sixpence to be 
made without any actual coin of that denomination being present. 

It may be of some interest, before proceeding farther, shortly to 
review the history of the half-crown. It was first struck as a silver 
coin by Edward VI., in 1551, the half crowns of his father, 
Henry VIII., having been in gold. Coins of this denomination in 
silver were not again struck until the close of the reign of Elizabeth, 
but for the two hundred and fifty years from 1601 to 185 1 their 
issue was practically continuous. In 1849, however, the florin was 
introduced, and out of regard to the theoretical importance of 
having a decimal coinage, half-crowns were no longer struck. Some 
ten years later, in 1861, Mr. Graham, then Master of the Mint, 
issued a circular to bankers requesting their opinion on the relative 
merits of the florin and half-crown ; but though the replies were 
nearly two to one in favour of the latter, no steps were taken at the 
Mint for its reintroduction into the currency. On the last day of 
1873 another circular was issued, seeking opinions not only on the 
comparative utility of the florin and half-crown, but also on the 
desirability of the two pieces remaining concurrently in circulation. 
An analysis of the replies, 302 in number, is given in the 'Annual 
Report' for 1873 ^^ ^'^^ present Deputy Master of the Mint. It is 
as follows : —

As a result the half-crown w^as restored to its place in the 
currency — a restoration that met with general approval. In 1874 
half-crowns to the value of upwards of a quarter of a million 
sterling were coined, and, in all, from the date when their issue 
was resumed, coins of this denomination to the value of 3,897;Oio/. 
had been put into circulation ^ by the end of last year. 

These figures speak volumes for the utility of the half-crown, 
which seems in a great measure to arise from its not being a mere 

I. Twenty-first Annual Report of Deputy Master of the Mint, 1890, p. 12. 



multiple of a shilling but from its combining in one piece the rsvo 
most common coins of our currency, the shilling and the sixpence. 

The convenience of such a combination had been recognised in 
the dark days at the beginning of this century, w^hen our silver 
currency had been reduced to its lowest ebb, and the Bank ot 
England coined and issued silver tokens of the nominal values of 
IS, 6d,, ^s,, and 55. 6d. This was in 181 1, and a large number of 
the tokens were put into circulation, to be recalled after the great 
recoinage of 18 16. I mention this issue of tokens merely as an 
illustration of the fact that at that time coins combining two 
denominations of the currency in one piece were thought best 
adapted to meet the necessities of the public. I have little doubt 
that if florins had never been coined, eighteen-penny pieces would 
have proved of greater convenience in the everyday "transactions of 
life. 

Turning now to our gold coinage, we find that though theoretic- 
ally we have four denominations, the five-pound and two-pound 
pieces, the sovereign and the half-sovereign, yet practically we have 
only two, viz. those last named. The larger pieces, though occasion- 
ally struck, have never really entered into the currency, and have 
been regarded rather as medals than as coins. Among the reasons 
for their not being wanted for common use one is that for sums so 
large as 5/. a bank note is more convenient, and another that the 
sum of 2/. is quite as readily represented by two separate sovereigns 
as by a single piece of money. 

Both the sovereign and the half-sovereign are absolutely indispens- 
able coins, and must continue to be struck, even though the latter 
is an extremely expensive coin to retain in circulation. I may be 
wrong, but it appears to me that any attempt to tamper witli the 
intrinsic value of^the half-sovereign, or to reduce it to the level of 
a token, would be strenuously opposed by the public. 

It is, however, well worthy of consideration whether by the 
addition of a gold coin of a new denomination to the two already 
in circulation public convenience as well as economy might not be 
promoted. If we take a glance at the former history of the gold 
coinage of this country we find that from the earHest times there 
were as a rule not less than three denominations of gold coins 
concurrently struck, and frequently many more. In the days of 
Edward III. these were the noble — the third of a pound — its half 
and its quarter. Under Henry VIII. the gold coins consisted of the 
sovereign of twenty shillings, its half, quarter, and eighth, to sav 
nothing of the angel and its parts, which formed, as it were, a 
separate currency. Under Elizabeth, besides the pound sovereign of 
twenty shillings and its parts, there were the double rial and rial of 
thirty and fifteen shillings respectively. Such pieces were also 
struck under James I., though eventually they became current at a 
rate of thirty-three shillings and sixteen shillings and sixpence. 

The question I now wish to discuss is this : whether it would 
not be generally advantageous at the present time to follow these 
old precedents and to introduce into our currency a thirty-shilling 
piece in addition to sovereigns and half-sovereigns. The objections 
to so doing would seem to be : 

1. That it would be an innovation. To which it may be replied 
that there are precedents for such a coin , and that if it prove 
convenient its novelty will be pardoned. 

2. That it may be confounded with the sovereign. But the size 
and w^eiglit would be different, and if thought desirable it might, 
like some foreign gold coins, have a smooth edge with a sunk 
inscription upon it as a safeguard against filing , instead of the 
serrated edge of the sovereign. 

3. That in counting out sums of money it would be inconven- 
ient. To some slight extent this would no doubt be the case , but 
no difficulty is raised about the counting of silver in which five or 
six denominations are present, and moreover the telling out of 
gold is in most instances checked by weighing. 

4. That there would be a difficulty in getting it changed. So 
long as sovereigns, half-sovereigns, and silver are current with it, 
this difficulty would appear to be imaginary rather than real. 
Under any circumstances, the difficulty is greater in the case of a 
5/. note. 

5. That foreigners would not be able to distinguish the different 
denominations of our coins. It seems very probable that we are in 
the habit of attributing to our foreign visitors a far greater dulness 
of comprehension than they possess; biyj^ would suggest that in

addition to the difference in size an entirely new type of reverse 
might distinguish the new coin from the sovereign , and that its 
vaUie might be marked upon it. Some such design as that which 
appears at the head of this article might possibly answer the purpose. 
Anyhow, the field, being larger than that of a sovereign, would 
give greater scope for the die-engraver's skill. 

As to the usefulness of a thirty-shilling piece , there can be no 
doubt that in most payments of amounts over one pound, of which 
there are an infinite number in * the ordinary transactions of 
everyday life ^ ', it would be found of great convenience. But it is 
even more on the grounds of economy than convenience that I 
advocate its introduction. I think that it may safely be assumed that 
the loss of weight in a thirty-shilUng piece by attrition in currency 
will not be greater than that of a sovereign, and therefore that 
the cost of keeping a mixed currency of sovereigns and thirty-shilling 
pieces in due and proper condition would be rather less to the 
country than if it were one of sovereigns only. If, however, for 
every thirty-shilling piece put into circulation the coinage of a half- 
sovereign were saved, the gain would be great and direct. 

It has been calculated that the amount of half-sovereigns in cir- 
culation is 22,500,000/., and, inasmuch as the life of such coins at 
their full weight does not exceed nine years, that an annual recoin- 
age of 2,500,000/. should take place, the loss on the light coins 
called in being 20,500/. Now it does not seem unreasonable to 
suggest that for every four half-sovereigns in circulation there 
should be one thirty-shilling piece. If this proportion were adopted 
only 2,000,000/. annually in half-sovereigns would need to be 
recoined; the remaining 500,000/. or one million half-sovereigns 
giving place to a million thirty-shilling pieces. The saving that 
would be effected by striking the reduced number of halt-sove- 
. reigns would be one-fifth of 20,500/., or 4,100/. per annum. In 
addition to this there would be a perceptible diminution in the 
Mint expenses, as there would be yearly 1,000,000 fewer gold 
pieces to strike, as each thirty-shilling piece would supersede a 
sovereign as well as a half-sovereign. 

The saving may seem but fractional when compared with the 
enormous value of our currency, but a sum of from 4,000/. to 
5,000/. a year is after all worthy of consideration. Anyhow, it is 
fully one-sixth of the total now paid for * salaries, wages, and 
allowances ' at the Mint. I therefore venture to recommend the 
proposed new coin to the favourable consideration of the public.

£TUDE SUR LES MONNAIES MfROVINGIENNES 

La numismatiquc de Tepoque merovingienne*, qui comprend 
plus de deux siecles (depuis Toccupation des Gaules par les Barbares 
jusqu'i Charlemagne), est encore pleine d'obscurites. Si les noms 
ct la situation g^ographiquc des principales villes de la Gaule, 
occupees pr^c^demment par les Romains, nous sont connus, cettc 
situation est encore ignoree pour le plus grand nombre des petites 
localites secondaires (vici, castra, etc. 3), ou les monnaies de cette 
epoque ont cte frapp^es. EUe est seulement indiqu^e sur les triens 
ou tiers de sou dCor^ qui nous sont parvenus, par des inscriptions dont 

1. A W. Tuer in the Timesy December 21, 1889. 

2. Le nom de Merauingiens^ donn^ aux rois de France de la premiere race, est 
tire de Merovie, fils de Clodion et aieul de Clovis. Pharamond, dont I'existence est 
aiijourd'hui consid^r^e comme douteuse, aurait ^t^ le premier roi de France (chef 
ou due des Francs) en 418. Childeric III, le dernier roi m^rovingien, fut depose 
en 752. On sait que M^rov^, uni en 451 au g^ntol romain A^tius et d Th^~ 
doric, roi des Goths, contre Atlila, roi des Huns, remporta sur ce barbare une 
victoire sanglante dans les champs catalauniques, pr^s de Chdlons-sur-Marne. 

3. Le victiSy reunion de maisons sans remparts ni forteresses, est le plus fr«J- 
queniment mentionntJ sur les monnaies m^rovingiennes ; on en compte environ 
20b. Les castra sont des agglomerations dMiabitants entourees de murs ou defen- 
dues par une citadelle; on en a compt^ une quarantaine. Le pagus est toute esp^ce 
de territoire ou de region, et de preference, d'anciennes circonscriptions fixes 
existant A Tepoque de la Gaule romaine. On trouve aussi sur ces monnaies 
d'autres ^pith^tes : casteUum, civitas, curtisy domus, ecclesiUy mallumy monasteriuniy 
sylvdy villa, — et les formules ratio fisci et ratio domini, qui d^signent Tadminis- 
tration royale; ratio eccl?sLf, qui indique Tadministration d*un domaine eccie- 
siastique. 

4. II y avait aussi le sou d' or (aureus ou solidus) pesant 72 grains (3 grammes 72), 
plus faible que Ic sou d'or romain. Le triens pesant 24 grains (i gramme 28) valait 
13 deniers 1/3. Le denier d'argent, appeie saiga^ pesait 20 grains (i gramme 08). 
Quant d la monnaie de cuivre, elle etait representee par les pieces romaines, qui 
avaient remplace les monnaies gauloises depuis longtemps, et dont il existait une 
grande quantite. 



Tidentification avec des localites actuelles est difficile, et ne pent 
souvent se faire que d'apres les analogies qu'ils presentent par le 
style, le type et le nom du mon^tairc * avec d'autres triens provenant 
de regions voisines et pour lesquels Tidentification ne laisse plus 
subsister de doutes^. 

II convient de rappcler sommairement quelques faits historiques 
remontant i Torigine de ces monnaies. 

Lorsqu'apr^s la mort de Th^odose I'% en 395, se consomma la 
division definitive de TEmpire romain qui, depuis quatre siecles, 
rt^sumait Thistoire du monde connu, Honorius devint empereur 
d'Occident (avec Tltalie et les Gaules) et Arcadius empereur 
d*Orient. L'empire d'Occident ne dura qu'un siMe; ses diverses 
provinces tomberent au pouvoir des Barbares : Wisigoths, Alains 
Su^ves, Vandales, Burgondes et Francs se distribuerent successive- 
ment ses riches d^pouilles, et en 476, Hodoacre, roi des Herules, 
deposa Romulus Augustule, le dernier des C^sars. 

Les Wisigoths, etablis d'abord en Italie, avaient envahi, en 412, 
la Gaule narbonnaise, et Honorius favorisa leur ^tablissement dans 
TEspagne romaine pour les opposer aux Suives. II leur c^a 
TAquitaine (qui comprenait le Poitou). Bientot apres, ils se ren- 
dirent maitres du sud-est et du centre des Gaules; mais Clovis, 
vainqueur d'Alaric II i la bataille de Vouille (507), ne leur laissa 
plus que la Narbonnaise, et les rois Wisigoths fixerent Ats lors leur 
residence en Espagne. 

Comme tous les Barbares, les Wisigoths commenctrent leur 
fabrication mon^taire par la copie servile du numeraire byzantin. II 
existe des ichantillons de ces monnaies wisigothes; elles sont i 
Teffigie d'Anastase' et d^pourvues de marques royales; mais elles 
portent les initiales des ateliers de Bordeaux et de Toulouse dans le 
champ du revers de la monnaie. 

Les Francs, venus de la Germanie, apparaissent pour la premiere 
fois dans Thistoire vers le miheu du ni*' siecle. L'empereur Julien 
(361-363) pour mettre fin aux devastations qu'ils portaient en Gaule, 
traita avec eux et leur abandonna la Toxandrie (aujourd'hui le 
Brabant), i condition qu'ils defendraient, de ce cot^, TEmpire 
contre les invasions nouvelles. A la chute de TEmpire d'Occident, 
on les trouve etabUs dans toute la Belgique actuelle et dans une 
partie du nord du pays qui devait prendre le nom de France, 

Bientot apres Clovis I" (481-5 ii\ veritable fondateur de la 
monarchie, le monnayage franc sort cle la periode de copie absolue 
des monnaies romaines, et, quoique le nom de Tempereur romain y 
figure encore, nous voyons apparaitre des marques d*ateHers et des 
modifications qui r^vdent une fabrication personnelle aux Barbares. 
Sous Theodebert P% roi d*Austrasie (534-548), les monnaies d'or 
re^oivent pour la premiere fois le nom du roi exprim^ en toutes 
lettres, avec son buste, et la Victoire au revers. Dans le champ du 
revers des sous d'or figurent des lettres indiquant un atelier mon^- 
taire, et Ton a reconnu ainsi Nantes (Namnetis^ N), Lyon (Lugdu- 
nuniy L), Reims (Remis, RE) et plusieurs autres. 

Sous le regne de Childebert I", roi des Francs (511-558), les mon- 
naies portent aussi le nom de personnages que les pieces posterieures 
appellent monetarii, et pendant la seconde epoque du monnayage 
m^rovingien, aui commence vers le milieu du vi'^ siecle pour 
prendre fin a la chute de la race de Clovis, ces mon^taires les 
signent presque toujours seuls. Caribert II (628-631), roi d'Aqui- 
taine, fils de Clotaire II, roi des Francs, nous a laisse de nombreux 

1. Les monnaies poridrent d*abord le nom de I'empereur (romain) ou du roi 
(franc) avec celui d'un fonctionnaire appeie monetarius. Ces monetarii etaient-ils 
les fermiers de I'impdt? etaient-ils ambulants? ou etaient-ils des officiers publics 
ou des orfevres accredites dans le lieu ou le pays oil ils signaient les monnaies ? 
On n'est pas encore exactement fixe sur ces questions, mais M. Prou pense qu'on 
peut admettre : 1° que les monnaies merovingiennes ont eie frappees dans les lieux 
dont elles portent les noms; 2° qu*il y avait des ateliers libres etablis dans les 
vilify viciy castra; 30 qu'il y avait d'autres ateliers, officitue publicwy avec le monopole 
de remission des monnaies fiscales (Revue numismalique, 1888, p. 543). 

2. Les monnaies merovingiennes se classent en deux series : les monnaies des 
rois et celles de villes ou de lieux. Les premieres ont leurs dates approximatives 
dans I'histoire, les secondes se classeront pour la date, par I'etude du style et pour 
I'origine par les noms geographiques qu'elles contiennent ; la critique aidant, on y 
parviendra t6t ou tard. Elles deviendront alors pour les archeologues des mate- 
riaux d'un prix incalculable (Vte d'Amecourt). 

3. Anastase, empereur d'Orient (419-518). Les Sueves, premiers envahisseurs, 
imiterent en Lusitanie la monnaie d Honorius et d'Avitus ; les Burgondes, les 
Wisigoths et les Francs firent frapper des reproductions fideles de quelques types 
employes i Byzance par Anastase, Justin et Justinien, et particulidrement de celui 
de la Victoire (Charles Robert, Observations sur les monnaies m&ovingienfus^ 
Paris, 1882).

iriens frapp(5s i Bannassac en G^vaudan *, avec le nom du roi et celui 
du mon^taire. — L'^mission avait lieu parfois express^mcnt an nom 
du fisc, rationefisci, ou au nom de telle ^glise ou de tel monastire, 
ratione ecclesiay ratiom monasterii. 

On compte environ mille ateliers monitaires, et il y en a 
probablement beaucoup d'autres : Textreme multiplicity de ces 
ateliers est, en efFet, Tun des caract^res distinctifs du monnayage 
m^rovingien. 

Le type a une importance capitale pour le classement de ces mon- 
naies. II est la base de toute attribution, la l^gende n'^tant qu'un 
accessoire qui indique le liet4 de remission, mais presaue jamais la 
region. Cette itude des types ou du style est difficile : Lelewel, 
Duchalais, de Longp^rier, s y sont livr& avec succfes, et plus r^cem- 
ment MM. A. de Bartheiemy, Deloche, d'Am^court et Prou. 

La numismatique m^rovingienne, trfe importante pour la g^o- 
graphie et I'histoire de cette ^poque, a it& tr^s 6tudi6e depuis une 
vingtaine d'ann^es, et s'il reste encore beaucoup d'ateliers dont 
la situation n'est d^signie que par des hypotheses plus ou moins 
solides, un certain nombre ont iti d^finitivement determines, et 
nous avons, en outre, des mat^riaux nouveaux qui faciliteront beau- 
coup les d^couvertes. 

Parmi les savants numismatistes qui, dans ces derniers temps, 
ont le plus contribue k ce r^sultat, il faut citer MM. Anatole de 
Bartheiemy et Maximin Deloche, membres de Tlnstitut, dont les 
travaux sont bien connus; — MM. Adrien Blanchet et Maurice 
Prou, attaches au departement des medailles, qui nous ont recem- 
ment donne, le premier, un Manuel de numismatique du nwyen 
dge et moderne, couronne par TAcademie des Inscriptions 2, et le 
second, un Catalogue des monnaies merovingiennes de la Bibliothique 
nationale comprenant 1131 pieces recemment acquises de la collec- 
tion du vicomte d'Amecourt, enleve trop t6t i la science, et qui 
s'etait devoue pendant trente ans X cette branche de la numisma- 
tique 5; — MM. A. Engel et R. Serrure, auteurs d'un savant Reper- 
toire et de nombreuses monographies, qui publient un Traite de 
numismatique du moyen dge plus developp^ que tous les precedents •» ; 
enfin M. de Belfort, directeur de VAnnuaire de numismatique^ qui 
prepare une Description generale des monnaies merovingiennes 5 avec un 
grand nombre de types graves, qui seront d'un grand secours pour 
les comparaisons et les decouvertes futures. Ces monnaies sont 
classees par ordre alphabetique des ateliers. 

Un savant archeologue de la Vendee, Benjamin Fillon, qui s'est 
beaucoup occupe de numismatique, preferait un classement par 
provinces, en prenant pour bases les circonscriptions ecclesias- 
tiques^, et il faisait remarquer qu'en eflfet toutes les monnaies mero- 
vingiennes sont des monnaies locales, et que le classement par ordre 
alphabetique a Tinconvenient de nuire aux decouvertes que Ton 
pent faire par le rapprochement des types; mais ce classement 
raisonne se fera facilement quand on sera plus avance dans les attri- 
butions et Qu'on se trouvera en mesure de donner une monographie 
definitive du monnayage merovingien. Le Catalogue publie par 

1. Canton de la Canourgue (Loz^re). 

2. Cest une nouvelle edition, tr^s augmentee et mise au courant, de rexcellent 
Manuel dc M. A. de Bartheiemy, qui parut en 185 1, et qui, pendant quarante ans, 
a M le guide de tous ceux qui entreprenaient T^tude de la numismatique. 

3. Cc travail de M. Prou, qui vient de paraitre (decembre 1892), a et«i fait pour 
ainsi dire, pieces en mains, par un homme dont la competence est incontestable, 
et c'est une veritable conqueie pour la numismatique m^rovingicnne : dispose par 
regions, il indique les identifications a pcu pr6s certaines aujourd'hui d'un grand 
nombre de triens. M. Prou y a joint une carte geographique qui aura un grand 
succte, et qui complete, au point de vue numismatique, les savants atlas historiques 
de M. Auguste Longnon. Ce catalogue comprend I'ancien fonds du Cabinet de 
France, le fonds Morel-Fatio et les plus belles pieces de la collection du vicomte 
d*Amecourt. Cet ensemble forme un tr^sor sans rival. 

4. Cet important ouvrage, aui nous a donn^ d'excellentes indications, embras- 
sera toute la numismatique du moyen ^ge dans les pays Chretiens. Certaines 
parties relatives aux anciens Etats d'Allemagne contiendront des renseignements 
et des aper<;us tout d fait nouveaux. 

5. La publication de M. de Belfort est considerable, et c*est une oeuvre de 
genereux d^vouement, veritable corpus de la numismatique merovingien ne, com- 
portant 4 volumes et comprenant les monnaies cities dans les inventaires publies, 
les monographies et surtout les documents laisses par le Vt« d'Am^court, aussi 
bien que les pieces non publiees, trouv^es dans plusieurs musses et collections 
particuliCires. Les deux premiers volumes ont paru. 

6. II y avait 12 circonscriptions ou provinces ecclcsiastiques dans la Gaulc 
fran^aise sous les Merovingiens. Ces provinces ^taient moins nombreuses que les 
anciennes provinces romaines dont el les procedaient. Le principe de la correlation 
des divisions ecciesiastiques avec les circonscriptions civiles romaines est un fait 
important pour la gtographie historique : il donna aux dioceses ecciesiastiques la 
circonscription des civiias (Aug. Longnon, Ge'ographie historique). 



M. Prou donne en partie satisfaction au vceu de Benjamin Fillon, et 
c'est aujourd'hui le plus complet dans ce sens *. 

— L'attention des archeologues du Poitou a ete souvent appelee 
sur deux triens trouves dans la Vendee et portant les legendes Theo- 
deherciaco et Tidiriciaco. On a beaucoup ecrit et discute sur Tidentifi- 
cation de ces deux monnaies, et nous avons voulu nous rendre 
compte de la solution definitive qui pourrait etre donnee i ces 
questions. Nous rechercherons ensuite quels sont les autres ateliers 
monetaires attribues k quelques localites limitrophes.

L'atelier de Theodeherciacum a du avoir une importance assez consi- 
derable, car on lui attribue une trentaine de monnaies actuellemeni 
connues. Les monnayers qui y ont travailie sont : Spectatus^ Johannes, 
Censurius, Eonomius, Aunoaldus, Chadulfus, Maurinus, — (V. Prou, 
CataL n°^ 2373 i 2390). — D'aprfes Fillon, Theodeherciacum doit etre 
identifie avec une villa merovingienne voisine de Fontenay-le-Comte 
et dont on retrouve la trace dans une charte de 1223, par laquelle 
Savari de Mauieon abandonne i Notre-Dame de Fontenay une rente 
annuelle qu'il percevait apud Motam Theberciaci, et Fillon pense avec 
raison que Theberciacum est une contraction de Theodeberciacum, et 
que la Mota Theberciaci n'est autre que le chateau dit vulgairemeni 
Chateau-Gail lardy possede par la famille Cha.steigner jusqu'i la fin du 
XI v^ siecle. Theberciacum a d'ailleurs donne la forme romane Thi-

B. Fillon a fait attribuer recemment au marche aux fruits de Fonte-

Tidiriciacum etait encore plus important, suivant toute probabi- 
lity. Que Theodebtrciacumy car on connait plus de quarante pieces de 
cette locality, routes differenies par les types et portant les noms des 
mon^taires : JoanniSy jEgulfus, Arastes^ Cinsuljus, Sigoaldus^ Gunde- 
bodeSy TeodericiLSy Theudulfus, Wita^ AnnoalduSy etc. (V. Prou, Catal, 
n°* 2356 i 2372). Plusieurs noms de monitaires 6tant communs 
avec Tatelier de Theodeberciacum, il est vraisemblable que ce sont les 
memes personnes et cela indiquerait que les deux localit^s itaient 
assez rapprochees Tune de Tautre. Toutes ces pieces ont du resie iti 
trouv^es dans la Vendte. 

Lelewel, en 18^5, avait identifi^ Tidiriacicum avec Chateau- 
Thierry, mais les documents ne donnent jamais i cette ville d'autre 
nom que Castellum Theodorici, et Ton ne voit pas par quelle s^rie de 
transformations Tidiriciacum aurait pu devenir Chateau-Thierry. 
F. de Saulcy a pens6 que ces triens pouvaient plutot provenir de 
Tiered (Maine-et-Loire) ; mais Fillon, remarquant le nombre 
considerable de ces pieces trouv^es dans le Poitou, y rechercha 
un nom de lieu dont la forme moderne r^pondit h la forme 
latine Tidiriciacum, et crut Tavoir trouv^ dans Thire (canton d9 
Sainte-Hermine), situ6 au centre des trouvailles ^ Un examen plus 
approfondi de la question a permis i M. Prou de d&igner Trii^ay- 
sur-le-Lay, commune de Saint- Vincent-Puymaufrais, ou se trouvait 
autrefois Tabbaye de Trisay, de Tordre de Citeaux. C'est cette der- 
nifere attribution qui nous parait 6tre la bonne, A tous les points de

A DICTIONARY 



of Coin Denominations of both Ancient and Modern Times, 

luith an account of their origin , value and meaning. 

^S - ANGEL 

JES. A Latin word of Aryan derivation, meaning both pure copper 
and a composition of copper and tin, such as bron:(e. The term 
served afterwards at Rome as as generic word for every kind of 
money. 

The Romans originally, like the Greeks of the time of Homer 
(and as also obtains at the present day amongst the wild tribes of 
Annam) used the value of a cow or bull as a standard or unit for 
the adjustment of the value of different commodities '. 

This fact is in close connection with the derivation of the latin 
pecunia (money) from pecus Seattle). 

As civilisation progressed, copper and iron became, with the 
cattle, mediums of exchange. Gold and silver being very rare, in 
those remote times in Central Italy, copper, which was very 
abundant, became the monetary standard. From the Phoenicians, 
the native Pelasgi became acquainted with the method of amalga- 
mating copper and tin, so as to produce a metal sufficiently hard to 
be used for coins and articles of general utility. At this early period 
(circ. B. C. 1000) this metal (bronze) was estimated by the bulk, 
in large blocks or bricks (Jateres) of irregular form, called aes rude 
(or aes infectum = crude copper.) 

According to tradition*, it remained in use up to the reign of 

1. Festus. — Festi Epit., p. 24. 

2. Hultsch r. — GrUchisch und Roinische Metrologie, 2"«^ ed., p. 254. 



Servius Tullius. Later on, these lumps of metal were offered to 
divinities of fountains, &c. Thus Livy mentions that Hannibal's 
warriors consecrated a number of these rudera to the goddess Fero- 
nia (B. C. 211). The finest specimens have been found at the 
source of the Arno , at the Aquae Apollinares, near the old Tar- 
quinies, and at Vulci in 1828. 

Their weight varies between 34 grains and 10.900 grains (Troy). 

Servius Tullius is said by Pliny to have been ** the first to mark 
copper pieces with the representation of an ox or some other ani- 
mal or symbol *' {primus signavit aes, Plin, /. r.), but the cus signa- 
turn is of a considerably later period. It consists of quadrilateral or 
brick-shaped pieces of bronze, having on one or both sides a symbol 
such as the ngure of a bull, sheep, pig, fowl, &c., or a shield, 
sword, lance, club, caduceus, trident, crescent, tripod, anchor, 
Pegasus, &c. These pieces were struck in large quantities and were 
reckoned by weight and circulated as the aes rude. Size and thickness 
were variable, and they were often divided into smaller portions. 
Their weight was of (about) four or five Roman pounds — the 
Roman pound weighing circ. 5057 grains (Troy) — for which 
reason they were called quincussis and quadrussis. Some specimens 
of the latter denomination are, however of a more recent period, 
such as those commemorating the victory of L. Papirius Cursor 
over the Samnites in 460 (B. C. 294) or the defeat of Pyrrhus in 480 
(B. C. 274). 

To these rough-looking pieces of metal succeeded a more regular 
coinage, circular in shape, inaugurated by the Decemvirs (304; 
B. C. 450) and called aes grave, of which the monetary unit was 
the as libralis — a pound weight subdivided into fractional parts, 
as will be seen in another article , under the denomination of as, 
(Vide, Ridgeway, Origin of currency and Weight Standards. Arso, 
Babelon, Monnaies consulaires, tome I.) 

AGNEL (a Lamb, from the Latin agnus) an early French gold 
coin, called at the origin Denier dor a rAgnel, and later also Mouton 
d'or, bearing on the obverse the figure of a Paschal Lamb with 1 
banner, and the legend, variously spelt : TCG'RSbGlSQVITOLL ' 
SPeaTTTS^nVbn^niSSROBIS (Lamb of God, which taketh 
away the sin of the world, have mercy on us). 

Until lately, when M. de March^ville in a learned paper, entitled 
** Le Denier d'or ^ I'Agnel ", pubHshed in the ** Revue Numisma- 
tique" (1889) pointed out the error of Le Blanc's assertion, it 
was generally assumed that Louis IX (Saint Louis, 1226-1270) 
was the first monarch who introduced this coin, having imitated 
the types of the deniers struck at Saint-Gilles by the Comtes de 
Toulouse, Alphonse-Jourdain (1112-1148) and Raymond V. 
(1148-1194). 

M. de Marchiville has clearly shown that the agnels attributed to 
Louis IX really belong to Louis X (13 14-13 16), and that 
Philip IV le Bel (1285-13 14) was the first to strike them. An 
ordinance of the king, given on the 27*** January 13 10 states : 
** Notre monnaie d'or, qui est et sera appel^e d Taignel, laquelle est 
semhlable (in standard) i celle du temps de saint Louis ". 

The agnels or moutons d*or remained current in France forever 
150 years and were in such favour, that many of the neighbouring 
princes and States imitated them. Le Blanc say's : '*Le poids 
et le titre de cette Monnoye ayant ^t^ fixe jusqu'i Charles VI, cela 
^toit cause que non-seulement les Fran^ais, mais aussi les Etrangers 
aimoient fort ^ contracter i cette Monnoye, et Ton trouve i tout 
moment dans les Titres et dans les Contracts de cqs temps-la, 
Mutones auri. " 

The first struck, on the 8'*" February 13 10, were at the rate of 
585 to the marc. Louis X fixed the value at 10 sols parisis, but 
under the subsequent reigns of Philip V, Charles IV, Philip Vly 
John II, Charles V, VI and VII, they underwent many altera- 
tions in standard and value. The king of England Henry V (1415' 
1422) also coined Agnels, after the battle of Agincourt, circ. 
1420; the two mint-towns were Rouen and Saint-L6; the coins 
bear the initials bRLRGX or bRIRGX and have two leopards 
instead of two fleurs-de-lys in the sections of the reverse. 

The agnels struck at Montpellier were still current under 
Louis XI. 

The weight of these coins varies from 65 to 30 gtains Troy.

AGNELE^ (a small Lamb^ an early French gold coin of equiva- 
lent value to the agnel, which it often represents. The ordinances 
of 22°** January 13 10, June 13 13, 6**»May 13 15, 8*^ December 13 16 
of Philip IV & Louis X mention the word " agnelet" instead of 
** agnel". According to the reign, it was worth 15 to 20 sols 
tournois. (See above article.) 

ANGEL (from the Greek Avyt^Xo^) a gold coin, formerly current 
in England, having for type : " Obv. the archangel Michael, with 
a glory round his head, and expanded wings, trampling with his 
left foot on the dragon, and piercing him through the mouth with 
a spear, the other end of which ends in a cross-crosslet which 
marks the termination of the legend. Rev. upon a ship, with two 
ropes to the mast from the stern, one from the prow, and con* 
cealing part of the side of the ship, is a shield bearing the arms of 
France and England quarterly, surmounted by a large broad cross, 
which conceals the lower part of the mast, at the top of which is the 
top-castle and above that, a cross-crosslet. " (Kenyon, Gold Coins 
of England, p. 52.) 

The earliest angels were stiuck before 1470 by Edward IV, who, 
after changing the value and weight of the noble, introduced a new 
coin, which was to be current for 6 s. 8 d. and weigh 80 grains, of 
the old value of half a mark, called at first the angel-noble, out soon 
simply the angeL 

Rud. vol I, p. 283, quoting Pat. 9 E. IX. pt. i. m. 20 says : 
*' 1465, In his fifth year another indenture was made with the Lord 
Hastings, by which the gold coins were again altered, for new forty- 
five nobles were to be made of the pound weight of standard gold, 
each noble going at ten shillings, or sixty-seven and a half of the 
pieces impressed with angels, going for six shillings and eight pence 
each, ana consequently the pound weight of gold was coined into 
twenty-two pounds ten shillings by tale, &c. '' 

On these earliest angels, Edward IV placed his own badge, the 
rays of the sun , over the mast. On each side of the cross on the 
reverse, is a rose and a sun, both emblems or badges of the king 
and his family. The legend on the rev. is : PER CRVCEM TVAM 
SALVA NOS XPC REDEMPTOR (By thy cross save us, O Christ, 
our Redeemer). 

Angelets or half angels of similar type were authorized to be 
struck at the same time, with rev. legend : O CRVX AVE SPES 
VNICA (Hail, O cross, the only hope !) 

Shakespeare alludes frequently to the angel, like his contempo- 
raries. In the "Merchant of Venice, II. 7. ", the great dramatist 
writes : 

** They have in England 
A coin that bears the figure of an angel 
Stamped in gold, but that's insculped upon : 
But here an angel in a golden bed 
Lies all within. * 

During his restoration (3'** Oct. 1470 to 14*^ April 147 1), 
Henry VI struck angels, of very similar type to those of Edward IV; 
they only differ in the substitution of an b and a lis for E and a 
rose, and the top castle and cross-crosslet for the rays of sun, the 
peculiar badge of Edward IV. The specimens bearing a B under 
the ship (some of which have no mint-mark and others with the 
MM. pierced cross) were coined at Bristol ; but they are all rare, and 
ananijelet of this type from Murchison's cabinet, fetched €30.10.0 
in 1864. 

A regular series of MM. were adopted on the second coinage of 
angels of Edward IV, after 1471, viz. annulet, cross-pierced, rose & 
sun united. The angels with the last named MM. are often attribu- 
ted, but not with certainty, to Edward V. Specimens with B under 
the ship, of the Bristol mint, are also known of this king. 

Richard the Third's only gold coins are the angels and angelets 
of the London mint, struck by Robert Brakenbury ** Master- 
Worker of the Money in the Tower". The MM. are rose & sun 
united on rev. (obv. from die of Edward IV.), rose & sun united 
on both sides, rose & sun on obv. and boar's head on rev, and vice- 
versa. 

The angels and angelets of the first coinage of Henry VII differ 
from those of Henry VI. by the substitution of a rox^ instead of a 
lis to the right of the cross. But the type of his second coinage 
differs slightly from the previous and is thus described in Kenyon : 
**obv. the Archangel Michael, with a glory round his head, and 



expanded wings, both knees bent, both heels resting on the 
Dragon, to whom his back is half-turned, while he is piercing him 
through the mouth with a spear, the handle of which is generally 
shaped like a cross-crosslet and marks the termination of the legend. 
Rev. uDon a ship, with two ropes to the mast from the stern, one 
from the prow, and filling up the whole space within the ship, 
but not concealing any part ot its side, is a shield bearing the arms 
of France and England quarterly, surmounted by a large broad cross 
which conceals the lower part of the mast, at the top of which is 
a top-castle; b to left of cross, rose to right. " MM. escallop shell, 
cinquefoil, grey hound's head, anchor, pheon, cross-crosslet, 
portcullis. 

The angelets are of the same type. 

Henry VIII minted three different issues of angels. The first is 
similar to the second coinage of his predecessor, with the MM. 
portcullis crowned and castle. In the next, he raised the value of the 
coin to 7 s. 4 d. or 7 s. 6 d., retaining the same weight i. e. 
80 grains, of standard fineness; MM. pheon, lis, sun's rays from 
beneath a cloud. 

The angels of the third coinage were of the value of 8 s., 
weighed 80 grs, and the fineness was reduced to 23 carats. 
MM. lis. On these, Henry VIII bears the title of King of Ireland 
(HENRIG8xD^G.AGL.FRA^Z«HIB-REX), which was granted to 
him in 154^. Besides the angelets, which were of the same type, 
quarter angels were struck, weighing 20 grs. 2j cts fine and ot the 
value of 2s. The legend on the reverse of the latter, is FRANCIE 
ET HIBERNIE REX. 

Under Edward VI, the value of the angels is maintained at 8 s.; 
they weigh 80 grs., standard fineness. The type is similar to 
Henry VIII. MM. on both sides, ostrich head. The angelets of this 
reign have the same rev. legend as the angels (PER CRVCE, &c.). 

Queen Mary fixed the value of the angel at 10 s. and of the 
angelet at 5 s. Weight : 80 and 40 grs respectively. Standard 
fineness. The legend of the rev. is A°DNO°FACTV°EST§ISTVD Z° 
hSTgMIRABI°Z° (It is the work of the Lord, and is wonderful 
in our eyes). Same type as those of Henry VIII and Edward VI. 

The only gold coins known of Philip and Mary are the angels 
and half-angels, on which the type, standard and value are not altered. 

We have to divide the angels issued by Queen Elizabeth in 
different periods, which are, according to Kenyon : 

1 5 58-1 578. Value 10 s. or 6 s. 8 d. Weight : 80 grs. Standard 
fineness. Type as usual, ship on rev. sailing to right, and having 
two ropes from the prow, three from the stern. MM. cross-crosslet, 
coronet, acorn, cinquefoil. 

1578-1582. Value 10 s. Weight : 79=«". Fineness 23 cts 3 Jk". 
MM. plain cross, bell. 

1582-1601. Value 10 s. Weight: 80 grs. Standard fineness. 
MM. A, scallop, crescent, hand, ton, key, O. 

The angelets proportionately correspond in value, weight and 
fineness with the angels of the same period, they are also of the 
same type , except that there is only one rope to the mast from the 
prow, and two from the stern and that the ship is always sailing to 
the right. 

Quarter angels correspond in every respect, except in weight 
with the angelets, but bear the legend on rev. ET HIBERNIE 
REGINA FIDEI. 

Likewise, the coinage of angels of James I is divided into 
3 classes : 

1605-1612. Value 10 s. or II s. Weight : 71^ grs. Standard 
fineness. 

The type of the obv. is not altered. On the rev. the ship remains 
as before, but with no cross above the shield in front of the mast, 
on which is a top-castle; ship sailing to right and having two ropes 
from mast to each end. MM. rose, mullet. 

1612-1619. Value II s. Weight : 72 grs. Old Standard. Same 
type. MM. tower, trefoil, cinquefoil, ton, crescent. 

1619-1625. Value 10 s. Weight : 65,^ or 64^ grs. Old Standard. 
Similar type of obv., but with the figure X under the Angel's left 
wing, inclicating the value of the coin. On the rev. the ship is 
slightly different; " it is ornamented on the sides with lions and lis 
alternately, a row of port-holes below them ; Us on poop, 3 masts, 
onelarge sail set, embroidered with the royal arms, above it a pennon 
with two streamers, embroidered with a lion. A small lion holding a

sword stands on the ship's beak, and a small lion crowned on the 
stem; the ship sailing to left, instead of to right. " MM. spur- 
rowel, rose, thistle, lis, trefoil. 

Charles I was the last king who issued angels. These continued 
to be of the value of 10 s., weighed 64^ grs, old standard. The 
type remained the same, except that the Archangel's spear pierces 
the dragon's mouth and comes out the other side. The legend on 
rev. is : AMOR POPVLI PRiESIDIVM REGIS (The love of the 
people is the king's protection). MM. cross on step, negro's head, 
castle , anchor, heart, rose, plume, portcullis, bell. — The angels 
struck from the design of Briot are recognisable by the workman- 
ship, which is much neater. Saint-Michael has both legs straight ; on 
the rev., the harp on the sail is not concealed, as on the other coins, 
by the foremast; cannons protruding from the port holes, no flag 
above sail, but one marked with cross at stern, no lion on prow or 
stern, but small B (for Briot) in front of prow, with lozenge above 
and below. 

The angel was the coin touched and distributed by the kings and 
queens of England to the people suffering from scrofula (or the 
** King's evil"). After Charles I, angels being no longer issued, 
a small gold medalet, bearing the same type of Saint-Michael 
overcoming Satan, was substituted for them and answered the same 
purpose. The piece was hung round the neck of the afflicted person 
with a white ribbon. It is known by the name oi touch piece, w^hich 
will form the heading of a special article. 

The allusions in the Epistle of Jude and in the Book of Revela- 
tion to the Archangel Michael in conflict with the Devil are clearly 
the foundation of the ancient tradition of Saint Michael overcoming 
the Dragon, and hence the origin of the type of the numerous coins 
and medals struck at different ages by various countries and mints ; 
an allegorical figure of the power of Good subduing that of Evil. 

(To he continued.) 

VARIA 

A reminiscence oj the late Af . Renan. 

Mr. Hyde Clarke writes in the *' Athenaeum " : 

'*.... As Smyrna has during so long a period been a metropolis of 
numismatics, to which the rarest medals converged, and where 
forgery has also had a home, Renan was anxious to see what the 
collectors had. I first took him to Mr. James Whittall, who had 
succeeded so many eminent predecessors, and made his mark in 
Europe. Besides many choice objects, Mr. Whittall showed us a 
Hebrew silver shekel. To this Renan devoted his earnest attention. 
He could not believe it to be genuine, but it was a splendid coin, 
and answered every test we could apply. Renan could come to no 
judgment. We then went to the rival of Mr. Whittall, Herr Louis 
Meyer, and saw his collection, containing many good things; and 
there also we saw a shekel, but one not so fine as Mr. Whittall's. 
Renan observed we had seen a shekel already which was finer. ** It 
is a forgery. " said Meyer, ** as this is; but Mr. Whittall gave 40/. 
for his, and I gave 24/. for mine. " 

** At length we came to a common dealer's, and there were 
shekels again, some for 4/., some for i/., unmistakable forgeries. 
So far as I could make out a man had come down from Syria with 
a small lot of coins. Among them was an Antiochus worth 14/., and 
some worth 7/. Then there was one shekel (only one). He went 
round to the collectors, who were eager to have a unique coin, but 
fearful of venturing on the high price. At length Mr. Whittall 
screwed up his courage, and secured the shekel. Then it transpired 
that the Syrian had one more, and Mr. Meyer took that ; but the 
rogue disposed of other and inferior shekels at lower rates elsewhere. 

** The impression on my mind was that Meyer suspected the 
forgery, and purposely gave the high price he did in order to show 
the shekel and avenge himself on his brother collector, who gene- 
rally got first choice. Meyer show^ed his shekel also to General Fox, 
the numismatist, a great buyer, as a forgery. 

** So far as I remember, the shekel was sold as a forgery at a sale 

Ji of Mr. Whittall's for upwards of 20/. The plot had been most cun- 
yiingly devised by the wary Syrians, who had forged the shekel, and 
Jpurchased expensive genuine coins to authenticate it. "

NUMISMATIC SOCIETIES, &c. 

Numismatic Society of London. — Nov. 17. — Sir J. Evans, President, 
in the the chair. — Lady Evans, the Hon. Kathleen Ward, Prof. 
B. Lewis, Major A. Smith, Dr. W. Vost, and Messrs. F. A. 
Inderwick, Q. C., and V. A. Smith were elected Members. — 
Mr. H. Montagu exhibited a tetradrachm of i£gce in iEolis, similar 
to Head, 'Hist. Num.,' p. 478, of which only one or two other 
specimens are known; also the pattern shilling of Queen Anne of 
1710, of which no current example was coined, and proofs of the 
shilling and sixpence of 1707 struck at Edinburgh, as well as a 
proof of the ordinary sixpence of 1707. — Mr. J. M. C. Johnston 
exhibited specimens of gold and silver bar money struck at Mozam- 
bique in the early part of the present century, and still legal tender 
there. These rare and curious pieces weigh respectively 222 and 
396 grains, and bear marks of value and countermarks as guarantees 
of genuineness. They were received at the Bank of Mozambique from 
the highlands on the Upper Zambezi together with some gold 
coins of Abaga, one of tne Mongols of Persia, who reigned at 
Baghdad, a. d. 1265-1281. Mr. Johnston was of opinion that these 
Persian coins found their way into South-East Africa from India. — 
Mr. A. E. Packe read a paper ^ on the Types and Legends of the 
Mediaeval and Later Coins of England'. After remarking that the 
mediaijval practice of placing religious mottoes on coins was derived 
from the Byzantine and Mohammedan coinages, the paper dealt 
with the English series. The chief point noticed was the connexion 
of the legend with the type in the case of the gold of the fourteenth 
and fifteenth centuries. It was suggested that the first verse of the 
penitential psalm on the leopard and half-noble could be connected 
with this type by the aid of a kindred text from Hosea, and that the 
legend on the two-leopard piece, the alchemical orign of which 
was accepted, probably induced the design on the secceeding noble 
in allusion to the Sluys victory. The type of Edward IV. 's angel 
was also referred to the overthrow of the Lancastrian party at the 
date of its issue. Other political allusions were remarked in the 
legends on the coins of later reigns, such as the execution of Lord 
Seymour of Sudeley in some of those of Edward VI.; the discovery 
of Virginia and the parting with the Duke of Anjou in those on the 
ryals of Elizabeth ; and the similar circumstances of their accession 
to the throne in that on her own as well as her predecessor's and 
successor's sovereign. The decline from Biblical legends to moral 
and finally purely secular sentiments in the next two centuries was 
commented on, and satisfaction was expressed that the unmeaning 
*'Decus et tutamen" on the edge of the crown had been disconti- 
nued in the Jubilee issue.

FINDS 



On the 17*** April 1891, Mr. Maile, the Railway Storekeeper, 
while superintending the construction of a site for store sidings of 
the new railway to Hindupur, betwen the Southern Mahratta 
Railway and the village of Yeswantpur, 3 1/2 miles from the 
Bangalore City Station, came across an earthen pot i 1/2 feet 
below ground, coniainine 163 Roman silver coins, or Denarii 
(Indian Dinar) in a good state of preservation, representing ten 
varieties, ranging in date between 23 B. C. to 51 A. D.. This find, 
brought to light by the labourer's pickaxe, is believed to be the 
first within the territories of Mysore, although Roman coins in 
gold, silver, and brass, have been found in considerable numbers 
at various times along the eastern and western coasts, and the 
interior, near a certain part of the Coimbatore district in South 
India. 

It is difficult to conjecture how the coins were deposited in 
Mysore, unless they were brought there by some Persian horse 
dealers. A circumstance that gives rise to this supposition may be 
mentioned here, and that is that one of the coins bears the Persian 
word Karkh scratched on it. This is the name of a town in the 
west of Persia, which appears to have been built about the 8^^ cen- 
tury by Marufi Karkhi, an eminent leader of the Sufi s.ct. The 
coin on which the word Karkh is scratched, has the figure of a 
horse on the reverse, and the word is scratched beneath the figure 
of the horse, so that it may fairly be conjectured that the word 
was scratched by a Persian as a means of identification, and they 
may have been buried for safety in the troublous times that then 
existed, and it is probable that the owner may have died suddenly, 
or have been killed, without disclosing the secret of where his 
hoard lay hidden. It is also possible that the coins may have form- 
ed a portion of some loot, and have been hidden away, and the 
thief not able to go back to the place where he had deposited them. 
Be that as it may, the coins form a very interesting link with the 
past, and the Mysore Government Museum, Bangalore, is the 
richer for the find. 

It is also possible that the coins may have been brought across 
the Indian Ocean by merchant traders direct from the Red Sea, as 
after Egypt had been conquered in the reign of Augustus, a navi- 
gator more venturesome than the others, struck boldly across the 
unknown expanse of waters, and reached the Malabar coast, thus 
opening the way for the despatch annually of a fleet of over one 
hundred vessels between the ports ot the Red Sea and the Western 
Coast of India. 

** Civil & Military Gazette" 29, 8. 92. 

In the excavations now being conducted at Mycenae some fresh 
tombs have been dug out in which many objects of importance 
have been found. Amongst them are some stone reliefs, very 
ancient arms, and some gold and silver coins. The inscriptions 
found, which would have a unique value as belonging to this place 
and date, are unfortunately illegible. 

** Athenaeum " 12, 11. 92. 

In last July, a small hoard of 104 Roman denarii was found at 
Corban (Berne, Switzerland). They belong to the reicns of Vespa- 
sian, Titus, Domitian, Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Sabina, itlius, 
Antoninus Pius, Faustina I and Marcus Aurelius. 

Recently a workman employed by the Corporation, while 
attending to some drainage work near the White Horse Inn, Has- 
lingden, came across a collection of coins embedded in the base of 
a wall. The coins, about 200 in number, consisted almost entirely 
of halfpence and farthings of the reign of William and Mary. A 
few were of the Stuart period. From a numismatic point of view 
the collection was of no material value. The coins were distributed 
(somewhat freely by the finder but acting on instructions received 



from Mr. Thornton, agent to the Duke of Buccleuch, he is now 
engaged in recovering the missing specimens.

In the Nutn. Chron. N. S. vol. X, p. 19, will be found a 
paper on the coins of this king, and an illustration of a similar 
penny to the one given here (pi. i, i). Neither Hawkins nor 
Haigh arrived at any conclusion as to the meaning of the 
letters MX* the former remarking ** it is difficult to suppose 
that Maximus was intended, and as difficult to form any other 
reasonable conjecture '*. In the absence of further light on the 
subject it seems probable that the letters do stand as an abbre- 
viation of the word MAXIMVS for it may be suggested that 
as Alfred borrowed his Victory-type from the Roman coinage 
he may also have derived the title of Maximus from the same 
source.

IL MEDAGLIONE ROMANO DI BRONZO 

Sunto degli Articoli : « Moneta:(ione imperiale di Bron:(o — // Meda- 
gliom Senatorio — Serie del Bronco imperatorio » pubblicati nella 
Ri vista Italiana di Numismatica, Fasc. Ill e IV, 1892. 

Cos' 6 un medaglione? Ecco una dimanda che si fanno da tempo 
immemorabile i numismatici , e alia quale vennero date numerose 
risposte; il che equivale a dire che non se ne diede mai una vera- 
mente soddisfacente. Oramai pero gli studii sono arrivati al punto 
che questa famosa risposta la si pu6 dare in modo, oserei dire, asso- 
luto ; e il merito ne va attribuito specialmente al Dottor Kenner, 
direttore del Museo Imperiale di Vienna, il quale sviscer6 veramente 
la questione nel suo importaniissimo lavoro pubblicato nel 1887 
nella Numismatische Zeitschrift. E di quell' articolo si possono dire 
una naturale derivazione; ei studii sopra accennati, pubblicati 
nella Rivista Italiana di Numismatica. 

II Medaglione dunque, ormai si pu6 dire senza ambagi, non h 
che un Multiplo delta moneta seinplice. Questa teoria, che venne gia 
ammessa senza difficolt^ per Toro e per Targento, ora possiamo 
parimenti ammetterla anche pel bronzo, sul quale si sono sempre 
addensate tutte le controversie. Le diverse ipotesi sul medaglione di 
bronzo vennero dall' avere sempre preso in considerazione il solo 
lato esterno della questione ; si era ciofe attribuita tutta I'importanza 
alia forma esterna, trascurandone la sostanza. Non si riconoscevano 
percio veri medaglioni se non a partire dall' epoca d' Adriano, e si 
escludevano quelli portanti le lettere S. C, volendosi che uno dei 
caratteri distintivi del Medaglione fosse appunto Tassenza di queste 
lettere. Ora invece queste lettere non incagliano piu la questione, e 
lo vedremo chiaramente dopo d'avere bene stabilita la base della 
storia monetaria imperiale. E' noto come, incominciando da 
Augusto, la coniazione del bronzo fosse di prerogativa del Senato ; 
ma ^ noto attresi che I'lmperatore, pure essendosi riservata comple- 
tamente la coniazione delV oro e dell' argento, non aveva rinun- 
ciato al diritto di coniare di quando in quando anche moneta di 
bronzo, allorchfe le circ jstanze lo richiedessero. Da qui abbiamo la 
prima grande divisione del Bronzo imperiale romano in Bronzo 
coniato direttamente dal Senato, serie che costiiuisce I'immensa 
maggioranza; e parallela a questa, in piccole proporzioni, la serie 
del Bronzo coniaia per ordine diretto aell' Imperatore. La prima 6 
sempre contraddistinta dalle lettere S. C. sigla dell' autoriti del 
Senato ; la seconda invece fe costantemente priva di queste lettere. 
Ora, come abbiamo le monete semplici (assi, dupondii, sesterzi) 
delle due serie, nello stesso modo abbiamo nelle due serie i rispettivi 
multipli (assi, dupondii, sesterzi doppi, tripli, etc., etc.) ossia i 
Medaglioni, coUa medesima costante differenza che quelli del Senato 
portano le lettere S. C. mentre quelli dell' Imperatore ne sono privi. 
I multipli o medaglioni pero seguono una proporzione precisamente 
inversa della monetazione semplice; ossia nella numerosissima serie 
senatoria i multipli o medaglioni sono cosi pochi (se facciamo una 
eccezione per I'epoca di Trajano Decio), che furono fin qui quasi 
completamente ignorati, mentre nella piccola serie imperatoria sono 
cosi proporzionatamente numerosi, che su di essi soli venne a fer- 
marsi Tattenzione dei raccoglitori e degli studiosi, mentre si trascu- 
rava e quasi s' ignorava la serie delle monete semplici. I Medaglioni 
sia imperatorii die senatorii incominciano col principio dell' impero; 
ma, mentre i primi conservano per tutti i tre secoli cne dura la mone- 
tazione del Senato, il tipo delle monete semplici, quelli coniati 
direttamente dall' imperatore, se incominciano pure modestamente 
col tipo della moneta semplice e corrente, e durano tali fino a 
Trajano, da Adriano in poi assumono forme e caratteri speciali. 
L'arte vi predomina e vi sfoggia tutte lesue risorse, le dimensioni 
aumentano, ed i medaglioni si mantengono ad un' altezza assai 
superiore a quella della moneta corrente fino all' epoca di Costan- 
tino ed oltre. 

Riassumendo dunque, il Medaglione di Bronzo non i che un 
multipo della moneta semplice. Come questa 6 senatoria o impera- 
toria, cosi sono i medaglioni o emananti dal Senato oppure diretta- 
mente dair Imperatore, e il cambiamento di forma esterna che 
questi ultimi assumono all' epoca d' Adriano non influisce punto 
sulla loro essenza. 

Come conseguenza logica, pare potersi dedurre che gli uni e gli 
altri ebbero corso di moneta precisamente come le monete semplici, 
il che spiega come in via generale la conservazione dei medaglioni 



che pervennero fino a noi sia a un dipresso eguale a quella delle 
monete semplici. 

Fraacesco Gnecchi. 
Milano, dicembre 1892. 



NOTE SUR L'AUTHENTIGITf DE DEUX MfiDAILLONS ROMAINS 
et des m^dailles antiques en gdndral 

Un amateur m'a consult^ derniferement sur deux midailles en 
bronze dor6, qu'il considerait comme des medallions pricieux et 
rarissimes, qui avaient &ti port& par des soldats romains, parce que 
ces bronzes 6taient entour^s de torsades avec biliires. lis auraient 
6ti trouvis, me dit-il, par un terrassier, lors de fouilles ricentes 
pratiquies dans une commune de la Vendue, oii' de nombreux 
objets gallo-romains ont iii dicouverts. — La plus grande de ces 
mMailles, que leur possesseur croyait reprisenter Tibfere, est de 
Claude I"; la seconde, de Drusus, fils de Tibfere. Les personnes 
peu habitudes i lire les l^gendes et k voir les types des nionnaies 
de I'empire romain confondent auelquefois Tibfere avec Claude, 
parce que Claude (^Tiberius Clauaius Drusus) faisait pr^cider son 
nom de I'abr^viation TI, rappelant Tibfere, son oncle, leauel est 
d&ign6 sur les monnaies et midailles par TI CAESAR seulement. 

Je n'ai pas 6ti ;\ mfeme de contr61er la provenance de ces midailles 
dories, mais j'ai reconnu ou'elles n'itaient pas authentiques, meme 
comme bronzes romains. tc sont des contrefa^ons du xvi* siecle, et 
par consequent des objets relativement modernes. On ne pent pas 
non plus les appeler des midaillons proprement dits, car si les pifeces 
auxquelles on donne ce nom sont souvent entour^es d'une torsade 
comme celles dont il s'agit, ou encastries dans une large bordure de 
m^tal, elles n'ont 6t6 trappees en bron:(e qu'i partir du rfegne de 
Trajan. Tous les midaillons des pricidents empereurs (et notam- 
ment ceux de Tibire et de Claude) itaient en argent \ De plus, les 
midaillons ne portent pas, comme ici, les sigks ou lettres S. C. 
(senatus consulto) qui itaient riservies aux piices circulant comme 
monnaie sous I'autoriti du Sinat '. Ces medailles ne sont done que 
des imitations d'un grand et d'un moyen bronzes monetaireSy qui ont 
iti doris et entouris de torsades avec biliires pour itre portis 
comme ornements ; mais ils n'ont pas hi6 frappis ^ I'ipoque qu'ils 
indiquent, et ils n'ont jamais iti suspendus i des enseignes ni 
portis par des soldats romains. 

On remarque, en effet, que la tite et les inscriptions de la piice 
de Claude sont mieux conservies et plus riguliires que celles des 
midailles authentiques parvenues jusqu'i nous. Cette midaille res- 
semble plutot i une autre du mime empereur qui fait partie de la 
sirie des bronzes dits Padouans, Ces piices, gravies au xvi* siicle par 
d'habiles artistes de Padoue et de Venise, et quelques autres ^ sont 
remarquables au point de vue de I'art ; elles sont en giniral de grand 
module et reprisentent les premiers empereurs. On les reconnait i 
la rigulariti des types, h leur conservation exceptionnelle (elles 
n'ont pas en effet dix-huit slides d'existence comme les midailles 
authentiques); — au style, c'est-i-dire i la forme des lettres des 
ligendes oui indique une ipoque plus moderne; k une autre 
rigulariti dans les contours ^ qui se trouve rarement sur les midailles 
de Tipoque romaine; enfin et surtout, k la patine 5, qu'on a souvent 

1. lis ^taient probablement donnas comme recompenses, et sont tr^s rares 
aujourd'hui. 

2. F. Lenormant (Monnaies el midailles). — II ne faut pas iron plus les confondre 
avec les midailles de bronze qu'on appelle contorniates i. cause du cercle creux 
qui remplace le gr^^etls autour de la pi6ce , et (jui paraissent avoir ^t^ frapp^es i 
roccasion des jeux des cirques depuis Constantm jusqu*ii Valentinien : ils repri- 
sentent souvent les premiers empereurs et des personnages cilfebres, et, au revers, 
des scenes emprunttjes i la mvthologie. 

3. A la fin du xvi« siicle, Caradosso, de Milan, s'inspira des midaillons 
romains pour ses midailles italiennes des Sforza de Milan, et des papes Alexandre VI 
et Jules II. Vittorio Camelio, sculpteur vinitien, les imita entiirement. II fut suivi 
dans cette voie par Giovanni Cavino , le Padouan , dont les ceuvres n*itaient que 
d'exccUentes copies des monnaies et midaillons romains, exicutis dans un but de 
speculation frauduleuse ( T.-A. Blanchet, Numismatique du moyen dg0 et moderne), 

Un autre graveur tris habile, Becker (d'Hanau), a contrefait un grand nombre 
de midailles et deniers des empereurs romains en or et en argent. 

4. A. de Barthilemy, Numismatique ancienne. 

5. La patine est ce vernis vert, bleu ou brun que Thumiditi, la chaleur et 
Taction des terrains pendant des slides ont diposi i la surface des midailles , et 
qu'il est tris difficile d'imiter. Cest lit un des grands icueils de la contrefa^on.

A UNIQUE (?) PATTERN SIXPENCE OF GEORGE IV 



The well-known '* lion " shillings and sixpences hardly need to 
be mentioned here except to show the difference in type between 
them and the rare sixpence here illustrated and published, we 
believe, for the first time. Upon the coins of the ordinary type the 
legend on the reverse reads, in full, BRITANNIARVM REX FIDEI 
DEFENSOR and is scarcely interrupted by the lion's crown , the 
final letter of the first word and the initial of the second nearly 
touching it. 

As will be noticed by reference to the illustration given above, the 
pattern sixpence now brought to the notice of numismatists is of a 
quite distinct type as regards the reverse, the legend of which reads 
BRITANNIARUM REX FID : DEF : and is divided for a consider- 
able space above the lion after the first word. The other points of 
difl^erence that may be noticed, are, that the legend is placed nearer 
the edge of the coin than on the ordinary type; the rose, shamrock 
and thistle are smaller and each emblem has its own stalk at the end, 
whereas on the common type they are united. The crown is 
smaller in circumference but rather higher, and the lion which 
surmounts it is also smaller, and his crown is much neater, smaller 
and in better proportion than on the piece familiar to most collec- 
tors. As a proof of the excessive rarity of this interesting little coin 
we should state that neither Marshall nor Crowther make any 
reference to it, though the latter mentions the shilling with the 
same type of reverse — a pattern long known to collectors and 
sufficiently rare to command a fancy price. We shall be glad to 
learn if any of our readers have been aware of the existence of this 
coin , for it seems quite possible that other examples may be 



extant, as the one we have had the pleasure of bringing to their 
notice is perfect in every respect and not at all of the character of 
some rough unfinishedi *' trial" pieces which are occasionally 
brought to light from old cabinets. 

This, as far as we know at present, unique little coin, is in the 
collection of John G. Murdoch Esq. 



/ KING BURGRED'S COINS 

The coins of Bur|;red (who was the last independent King of 
Mercia) are all pennies. They are of silver though not invariably of 
the finest quality, and have on the obverse the head of the King, 
surrounded by his name, and sometimes followed by RE, REX, 
RECX, RE. M, or REX.M. and on one coin his name is said 
to be spelt BVRGRD. Sometimes the legend commences from 
the top of the coin and sometimes from the side, and on the 
reverse there are four distinct types : 

r. The moneyer's name between two lines curved at the ends. 



2. The moneyer's name between two lines curved at the ends, 
but a segment of a circle above and below. 



3. The moneyer's name between two semi-circles inclosing his 
denomination. 



4. The moneyer's name between two semi-circles inclosing his 
denomination, but the arcs separated in the centre and the ends 
curved in. 



The moneyer's name invariably commences to read from the 
central part of the coin, sometimes continuing above, sometimes 
below, and followed by ** MONETA " in two lines; occasionally 
the N and E in MONETA, are monogramed to economise space. . 
The O in MO N ETA is generally represented by a plain circle, but 
occasionally, by a radiating one of four points or a lozenge, and in 
one instance by a cross. 

A hoard of Burgred's coins was discovered at London (with 
some specimens of Ethilred I, and the early type of Alfred the 
Great, and a Saxon Sceatta), whilst workmen were digging the 
foundations for the present Waterloo Railway Bridge across the 
Thames, and nearly all the specimens w^ere in a remarkably fine 
state of preservation. 

There are more than a thousand varieties of Burgred's coins and 
the names of over one hundred moneyers have been found on his 
money, and on that account alone it may be conjectured that the 
coinage of this reign was a large one, and probably required for 
the payment of war expenses rather than for commercial enterprise. 

The young collector of Saxon Coins will find a wide field open 
to him m studying the money ofBurgred, as many of the specimens 
are easily obtainable at a twentieth part of the cost of the coins of 
other Saxon Kings. Burgred's money is as a rule found in a fine

state of preservation and exhibits many varieties of the Saxon 
alphabet and Saxon monograms, and displays a variety of Saxon 
ornamentation and originality of design. 

Specimens of types 2 and a are not so frequently met with as of 
types I and 3. Type 4 is by tar the rarest ot the series, and type 3 
the commonest.

REGIMENTAL MEDAL. 
43r«i (MONMOUTHSHIRE) LIGHT INFANTRY REGIMENT. 



On the 1" 2"** y^ and 4*^ May 1882, Messrs Sotheby, Wilkinson 
and Hodg e sold in their well-known Sale-rooms in Wellington 
Street, Strand, the valuable and important collection of Historical 
and Naval and Military War Medals of the late Captain J. Hamilton, 
and James Sanders Esq, 

The very interesting series of Regimental Medals then sold, 
included one for the above regiment, described in the catalogue in 
the following words : 

524.— 43rd Foot, Monmouthshire Light Infantry, Crown above 
bugle and 43 ; around, awarded, &c. to Henry Wharton, &c. for good 
conduct and long service. Rev. Inscription stating that the recipient 
was present at fourteen battles and one siege during the Peninsula 
War, ^ 2. I, ribbon, crimson with blue edges, exceedingly rare. 

' This Medal was purchased at the sale by a Mr Marsden, and it 
appears from Capt : Tancred's excellent book '' Historical Record of 
Medals & Honorary Distinctions " that either //, or a very siniilar 
Medal presented to the same individual, is now in Chelsea Hospital. 

This exceedingly rare Medal is represented in the cabinets of 
some Collectors by a plaster cast. 

An equally valuable and unique Medal for the same regiment, 
but awarded for '' Distinguished Conduct in Action " has lately been 
added to the collection ot Lieut Col : J. B. Gaskell. 



The recipient — Color Sergeant Robert : Jermy — was born at 
Mettingham, a small village about two miles from Bungay in 
Suffolk. 

After Many years of very trying service he retired with a pension 
of 14/- per week, and was elected a member of the Royal Body 
Guard, S* James's Palace, in recognition of his distinguished services. 

The present possessor received this unique Medal (together with 
Sergeant Jermy's six clasp Peninsula Medal) indirectly from the 
recipient's relative and namesake Robt. Jermy. 

Silver Medal. 

Obverse. — The regimental number 43 within the cords of a 
suspended bugle, raised upon a boss contained within a garter 
inscribed *' Monmouthshire Light Infantry " in raised characters — a 
royal crown above. The ground engraved with floral decoration. 

Reverse. — Inscribed ^^Distinguished Conduct in Action'^ within 
a laurel wreath. The ground engraved with close horizontal lines. 

Ribbon. — 1 1 inch wide, crimson with pink edges. To the ribbon 
are attached silver clasps inscribed (in old block type) ** Atnerica. " 
''Flanders. " '' Portugal. " ** Spain. " '' Peninsula. ^' '' Pyrenees. " 
''France. " " Bayonne ly^ Nov. 181 }. " 

The last inscription is engraved on the same Clasp as " France " ; 
but on the underside of it. 

Engraved upon the Edge of the Medal is " Color Sergeant 
R. Jermy. i 

V Col. J. B. Gaskell. 



IN HALF DOLLAR 



L 



It will doubtless be interesting to our readers on both sides of the 
Atlantic to have an illustration of the Commemorative half-dollar 
which has been struck for the World's F.iir to be held this year in 
the energetic and prosperous city of Chicago. The following is a 
description of the coin : — Obv : Bust of Columbus r., legend; 
♦UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ♦ COLUMBIAN HALF 
DOLLAR. Rev. Caravel in full sail 1., Beneath her, the Old and 
New Worlds and thedate 1492. Legend : ^WORLD'S COLUMBIAN 
EXPOSITION CHICAGO* 1 892. 

The general design of the piece is original and interesting and 
preferable to the workmanship, which seems wanting in finish. The 
coin, however, will remain as a pleasing memento both of the 
fourth centenary of the discovery of the New World and of the 
wonderful exhibition now being prepared in the West, though it 
strikes us as being a curious anachronism that the coin, dated 1892, 
yet apparently commemorates (though doubtless in a secondary 
degree) the " World's Columbian Exposition " to be held a twelve- 
month later. 

We should add that the edge of the coin is grained. We under- 
stand the piece already commands a considerable premium. 



CORRESPONDENCE 

Messrs Spink & Son. 
Dear Sirs, 

I am highly pleased with your interesting and valuable " Numis- 
matic Circular '; but the table of weight, fineness and value of 
foreign coins, given on pages 10 & 47 respectively, are evidently 
not altogether reliable. 

For instance on page 10 the Spanish 5 pesetas (in silver) is 
represented as of somewhat lower value than the Belgian 5 franc 
piece, though it is described as a trifle heavier and of better standard. 

You remark that the values given in the table are absolutely 
nominal : this is indeed true of the silver pieces. It would have 
been better if the price per ounce adopted for thfi^-aluation of the

silver coins had been given. I had the curiosity to take steps to ascertain 

What this was. My results were : for the Portuguese 500-reis piece, 

[iy pence per oz. standard : the rupee 63*2 pence : the U. S. dollar, 

.63 pence : the Japanese Trade dollar (*' New dollar ") 57 * pence : 

fhe 5 peseta piece, 565 pence : and for the Norwegian Species daler 

j.3.9 pence. 

The fineness of the silver franc is given as 900, whereas it is 
^ell known that it is 835, the 5 franc piece being the only French 
silver coin 900 fine. 

The "New dollar" of Japan was issued in 1875, and has been 
replaced by a yen of 416 grains, 900 fine. 

The Mexican silver peso is by no means a * new ' dollar, but is 
the sole surviving representative of the Spanish pillar dollar. A 
figure is omitted in the pence column in appraising its value. 

The Peruvian dollar, or sol, since 185 1, represents the five franc 
piece, and therefore weighs 385.8 grains, 900 fine. 

The Russian half-imperial or gold 5 ruble piece has for the past 
seven years been struck of the same weight and fineness as the 
20 franc piece (99.57 grains, 900 fine) : tne former half-imperial 
was of the weight and fineness given in your table , the standard 
being that of the English gold coin. The silver ruble for the past 
seven years is of the same weight and fineness as a silver 4 franc piece 
of 900 fine (308.6 grains). The former ruble weighed 320 grains, 
875 fine, as given in the table. 

I think you will find that the exact weight of issue of the 
Turkish san-yuzlik or gold 100 piastre piece is 11 1.36 grains. 

I have scarcely time at my disposal to remark on the table on 

Eage 48 ; but I think it calculated to mislead many. There cannot 
e a gold par, that is, a fixed gold par, with countries using a 
silver standard or an inconvertible paper Cv rrency. In such countries 
the gold coin, if issued at all, is commercial money or merchandize. 
There is at present practically no such thing as a gold rupee : the 
mohur, evidently adopted on page 48 for calculating a gold par, was 
originally intended to pass, if it would , for 15 rupees : and it is at 
present not a I'y rupee piece, but worth as many rupees as can be 
got for it. The Russians have indeed an inconvertible paper legal 
tender : and the silver ruble is used in trading with the peoples on 
the Asiatic frontier : but the gold issue of Russia is, besides being 
commercial money for internalpurposes, used to a certain extent in 
dealings with foreigners. I observe that the Russian gold par ot the 
sovereign is calculated from the 5 ruble piece antecedent to 1886.

fm UNPUBUSHED TOKENS 

Mr. F. M. WilK^ \)f Steeple Aston, Trowbridge, who is an 
ardent collector ofAy*^ century tokens of Wiltshire, has kindly 
furnished us with the following particulars of a few hitherto 
unpublished tokens which have come under his notice, forming 
portion of an interesting article written by him and printed in the 
'' Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine ", 
vol. XXVI, p. 391.

CARIER.MALMESBVRY = The Grocers' Arms. 

(This is a smaller and thinner piece than that described by 
Boyne (90) , and it will be noticed that the centre types of the 
obverse and reverse are transposed !) 

MARLBOROUGH 

A farthing of Thomas Keene (Boyne No. 97) from a different 
die. The S on the obverse does not stand below the legs of the 
doves, but touches the tail of the lower bird to the right. 

TROWBRmGE 

The place of issue on Robert Darcke's token is spelt by Boyne 
TVRBRIDGE, and by Williamson TRVBRIDGE. Both varieties 

are to be met with.

Numismatic Society of London. — Dec, if, — Sir J. Evans, Presi- 
dent, in the chair. — Mr. R. Hewitt was elected a Member. — The 
President exhibited the original die, from the Chapel of the Pix, of 
a penny of Edward III. or Richard II., very much worn by use; 
Mr. A. E. Copp, a shilling of Charles 1. struck in gold, and a five- 
shilling piece of the Commonwealth, 1651 ; Mr. Mackerell, a large 
brass coin of Hadrian in very fine condition, having on the reverse 
a dekastyle temple with the letters s. c. in the field and repeated 
in the exergue. — Mr. W. C. Boyd exhibited a plated denarius 
of Augustus, rev, dvrmivs ni. vir, Victory with wreath and palm; 
also a oase denarius of Julia Massa, rev, fides militvm, figure seated 
holding globe. — Mr. L. A. Lawrence exhibited a penny ot 
Edward II., interesting as showing a combination between a 
Durham obverse (that of Bishop Beaumont) and a London reverse, 
proving that the Durham dies were engraved in London. — Dr. 
F. P. Weber exhibited a lead medal of Paracelsus bearing the 
inscription theophrasttvs paracelsvs.A** 1541, and a full- face figure 
clad in an ample gown and holding in his hands an object supposed 
to be the handle of the famous two-handed sword which it is 
recorded Paracelsus used to keep by his side when sleeping. — 
Mr. F. B. Baker read a paper on some rare Greek coins obtained by 
Mr. Loring during his recent travels in Arcadia. Among them were 
the following : Parium, Commodus, rev. a standing figure of Eros, 
copied from the once famous Eros of Praxiteles; Megalopolis, 
Severus, rev. AYKEA or AYKAIA, recording the celebration of 
the Lycaean games, the origin of which is ascribed by Pausanias to 
Lycaon, the King of Arcadia, who introduced the worship of the 
Lycaean Zeus TPausanias states further that these games were older 
than the Panathenaia at Athens and as old as the Olympian games : 
Mr. Baker thought it probable that the Lyka^a had been discon- 
tinued before Pausanias's time, but that they had been renewed 
earlier than the time of Sept. Severus); Delphi, Faustina, rev. the 



Temple of Apollo, containing the statue of the god; Corinth, 
Domitian, rev. triumphal arch surmounted by a chariot supposed to 
be a copy of the Propylasa at Corinth, which, according to 
Pausanias, had upon it the chariots ofPhaethon and Helius. — Dr. 
B. V. Head, in the course of some remarks upon Mr. Baker's paper, 
said that on the coin of Parium exhibited by him the figure of Eros 
appeared to hold in one hand a flower, and that if so this would 
tend to confirm the theory of the late Dr. Stark that the epigram of 
Palladas in the Greek anthology, in which a statue of Eros is descri- 
bed as holding in his two hands SsX^Tva y,al avOo^, may have been 
after all an accurate description of the Eros of Parium by Praxiteles. 
Mr. Montagu read a paper on a find of coins at Fischenich, near 
Cologne, with observations on Flemish imitations of English nobles, 
some of which were included in the hoard. The writer, who exhib- 
ited a considerable number of these imitations, was of opinion 
that they were not struck by authority of the kings of England, but 
by private enterprise in the interest of commercial transactions 
between England and Flanders.

British Museum. — We learn that the Trustees of the British 
Museum have appointed Dr. Barclay V. Head keeper of the Depart- 
^rnent of Coins and Medals, in succession to Prof. Reginald Stuart 
Poole, who retires after forty one years' service. 

We believe that all numismatists in England, and the very large 
number abroad^ to whom the name of Prof. Reginald Stuart Poole 
has become almost a household word will feel keen regret at his 
disappearence from active service at the British Museum, where 
he has so long and ably presided. — The Department has been 
much enriched in numismatic treasures during the long period 
alluded to, but perhaps Prof. Poole's greatest claim to gratitude lies 
in the issue of the well-known catalogues, which bring the 
splendid contents of that special branch of the National Museum so 
fully before the public and prove of inestimable value to the numis- 
matist. Prof. Poole has been ably seconded in this laborious work 
by Dr. Barclay V. Head, and we doubtless echo the sentiments of 
all when we congratulate him on his succession to the honourable 
position about to be vacated through the well earned retirement 
of Prof. R.S.Poole. 

Cabinet de France. — Nous apprenons avec plaisir la nomination 
de M. Ernest Babelon au poste important de Conservateur en chef du

SYRACUSE 

We have adopted Dr. B.V. Head's classification of theSyracusan 
series, according to his valuable work ** On the chronological 
Sequence of the Coins of Syracuse". (Num. Chron., 1874, p. 1-80.)

//.,I, II. F. 

With reference to this coin, it may be interesting to extract 
the following remarks from Dr. Head's article : ** In the year 
480 Gelon gained his famous victory over the Carthaginians at 
Himera, and, by the intervention of his wife, Demarete, con- 
cluded a solemn peace with his vanquished foes, the conditions 
of which were so much more favourable than they had been 
led to expect , that in gratitude they presented to Demarete a 
hundred talents of gold, from the proceeds of which were 
struck, circ. B.C479, ^^^ celebrated Pentekontalitra, sumamed 
Demaretia. These pieces of 50 litrae or 10 Attic drachms are so 
well known that I need not here describe them minutely. The 
head upon the observe is crowned with olive instead of with 
the usual diadem of beads, and may be intended for Nike ; it is 
also enclosed in a circle as on some of the earlier tetradrachms 
with the 9. In the exergue is a lion, possibly the symbol of 
Africa, in memory of the great victory over the Carthaginians,

concerning which Diodoros remarks that the number of captives 
taken by Gelon was so great that it seemed as if all Lybia had 
become his prisoner. ( *Ejcijy£TO yap ar/^ui«X<iSTu>v ToaoCxo Tzkffio;, 
cuOTE Soxctv uico T^t vijaou yiYOV^va' tijv Ai6uvt) oXr,v atvfAaXcuxov. 
Diod,, XI, 25.) — Besides the pentekontalitron or dekadrachm 
there are tetradrachms and obols of this coinage ; the former 
bears a very close resemblance to the dekadrachm; the obol 
has the same olive-crowned head upon the obverse and the 
usual wheel upon the reverse. — These coins may be looked 
upon as the last of purely archaic style. "

'* The Medallions of Syracuse " says Arthur J. Evans M. A., 
F. S. A. in his recent and most valuable work on the ** Syracusan 
Medallions *', have been the admiration of the ancient and modern 
world. Those struck towards the close of the Fifth Century B. C. 
have specially arrested attention, on account of the marvellous 
art that they display. The heads that appear upon these coins are 
of two main types : that of the Nymph, Arethusa, with her luxur- 
iant tresses contained in a beaded net ; and an even more beauti- 
ful head of the Maiden Goddess, Persephone, — or, if that name 
for her should be preferred, D^m^ter Chlofi, — crowned with the 
earless barley spray, green and growing, so appropriate to her 
inner being, as symbolizing the yearly upspringing of Nature to 
life and light. Ot this head Winckelmann remarks that ** it tran- 
scends all imagining ", and elsewhere he asks : ** Hatte nicht 
Raphael, der sich beklagte zur Galatee keine wurdige Sch6nheit 
in der Natur zu finden, die Bildung derselben von der besten 
Syracusanischen Munzen nehmen k6nnen , da die sch6nsten Sta- 
tuen, ausser dem Laocoon, zu seiner Zeit noch nicht entdecket 
waren? Weiter als diese Munzen kann der menschliche BegrifF 
nicht gehen " (op. cit. 1. 251, Erinnerung ueber die Betrachtung 
der Werke der Kunst). Payen Knight (Archaeologia, xix, p. 375) 
says of the Syracusan *' medallions '*, ** to the suolime perfection 
of these coms no work of man of a similar description has 
hitherto even approached **. Lenormant remarks, ** Regardez 
pendant quelque temps une monnaie gravte par Ev^n^te et bien- 
t6t vous oublierez les dimensions exigues de 1 objet que voustenez 
k la main ". Dr. Head in his Historia Nitmorum calls the magnif- 
icent dekadrachm signed by Euainetos ** the chef d'ceuvre of 
the art of coin engraving ". — A new interest has, since Winc- 
kelmann's time, been added to these splendid coins by the 
recognition of the fact that the names of kimon and Evaenetos 
that appear upon them are those of the artists who engraved the 
dies, and who worked for other Sicilian cities beside Syracuse. 
Various efforts have been made in this connexion to contrast the 
style of these two artists, but the scale has generally weighed in 
Evaenetos's favour. ** If we only possessed Kim6n's piece, " 
observes Lenormant, ** it would justly awaken in us our entire 
admiration and would be cited as a type of inimitable perfection. 
But it pales beside the work of Evaenetos. The style of Kim6n — 
superior as it still is to the finest works that the Renaissance itself 
has produced in monetary art — appears smaller by comparison 
vMh the other.... Kim6n is a great artist : Evaenetos is the 
greatest of all in the branch that he has cultivated. He is the 
Pheidias of coin-engraving. " As to the actual school to which the 
works of Kim6n and Evaenetos are to be referred, Lenormant 
would detect that of Polykleitos rather than Pheidias ; but there 
seems, in truth, to be no good reason for seeking the artistic 
traditions here represented beyond the three seas of Sicily. — 
Certainly we have not here the bold and simple style of some of 
the co{ns of Greece proper, and the detail and ornament of these 
*' medallions " has been a stumbling-block to some who would 
transfer the canons of high art in sculpture to the narrow field 
on which the die-sinker exercised his craft. But it was precisely 
because the great Sicilian engravers took a juster view of the 
requirements of their special branch of art that they attained, at 
such a surprisingly early date, a perfection not to be found else- 
where in Hellas, and that their masterpieces surpassed in beauty 
and interest all but a very few exceptional pieces to be found 
throughout the length and breadth of the Greek world. The gem-

like finish of the details, the decorative richness, the more human 
beauty of the features that'they represented, the naturalistic glean- 
ings from the Sicilian fields around-from air and sea-thrown into 
their designs, were regarded by the artists of these dies as alto- 
gether appropriate to this class of small relief in metal-work. "

VII. TIME OF TIMOLEON AND THE RESTORED DEMOCRACY, B.C.344-317. 

** In B.C. 345, Timoleon of Corinth, under the special pro- 
tection of the great goddesses of Sicily, Demeter and Persephone, 
left his native land to fulfil his divine mission of liberating 
Sicily from her tyrants (Plut.. Tim. 8; Diod, XVI, 66), The 
democratical form of government was now re-established at 
Syracuse. At the same time an entirely new currency was issued, 
wherein electrum supplanted the pure gold previously in circu- 
lation. By this change the State effected a saving of some 
20 per cent. The Corinthian silver stater equivalent m value to 
the Attic didrachm, was also substhuted for the tetradrachm as 
the principal silver coin. (Head, Historia Numorum, p. 156.)

VIII, AGATHOKLES. B.C.317-289. 

** Syracuse was not destined to enjoy, for any length of time, 
the freedom which she had regained by Timoleon*s aid. The 
Democracy, we know not by what means, seems to have 
lapsed into an oligarchy, and the oligarchy in its turn to have 
given place to a Democracy. Shortly after this, Agathokles, 
who had been named General of the cinr, and had consequently 
a mercenary force at his back, by a sucfden stroke, seized upon 
the reigns of government, and after butchering 4000 of the 
principal citizens and banishing some 6000 more, convened 
what ne called an Assembly of the people, and got himself pro- 
claimed Despot ". (Head ** Coins of Syracuse " p. 40.)

XI. PYRRHOS, B.C.278-276. 

** Hiketas was expelled from his sovereignty at Syracuse by 
Thynion, who installed himself in the island of Ortygia, while 
Sostratos was master of the rest of the city. These two, weary 
of mutual contention, sent a deputation to Pyrrhos of Epirus, 
then in Italy. (Diod., xxii.) — The Syracusans were at this 
time hard pressed by the Carthaginians, and their last hope 
was in Pyrrhos, who had married Lanassa, a daughter of their 
old tyrant, Agathokles. The entry of Pyrrhos into Sicily was 
opposed by the Mamertines, who allied themselves with Car- 
thage ; but he was favoured by Tyndarion, tyrant of Taurome-

nium, at which place he effected a landing in safety. Thence he 
proceeded to Syracuse, the reins of government having been 
given up to him by Thynion and Sostratos, B.C. 278. — From 
tnis time until 276 he waged a successful war against the 
Carthaeinians, and united under his sway nearly all the Greek 
cities of the island. Nevertheless his rule in Sicily was not of 
long duration ; and when he left again for Italy, his Sicilian 
kingdom was already crumbling beneath his feet. " ff. p. 55.

XII. HiERON II., B.C.275-216. 

** The departure of Pyrrhos, in B.C. 27$, left the Syracusans, 
for a short time, without a leader, until Hieron, a young Syra- 
cusan officer who had served under Pyrrhos, was elected gener- 
al of the army. — He soon obtained great power in the councils 
of the Republic, and after his victory over the Mamertines, in 
B.C.270, the title pa<jiXe;5« was conferred upon him. — His long 
reign, B.C.275-216, is, on the whole, one of peace and great 
prosperity, which affords but few materials tor history. His 
government was remarkably mild and eauitable, and we read 
that both he and his son Gelon avoided all display of royal 
power. Hence it has been suggested that the heads on the 
coins bearing the names of Hieron and Gelon may be tradition- 
al portraits of Gelon I., firom whom Hieron claimed descent; 
but this cannot be proved. " ^- P- 60.

Dr. Heacf, in connection with this coinage bearing the head 
of Philistis remarks : ** It is consistent with what we know of 
Hieron's habitual modesty (Livy, 1. c.) that he dit not place his 
own head upon his coins, either of gold and silver (if we except 
the large piece of 32 litras, which may perhaps be regarded m 
the light rather of a medal than a com), but preferred rather 
to perpetuate the memory of his wife, the daughter of a pri- 
vate citizen, and on that account probably less obnoxious to the 
democratic party in the state, and of his son, who bore the 
illustrious name of Gelon. " H, p. 66, 

CLASS E. — Gold and Silver, with IlKEAIflTAN. 

** These coins may have been struck after the conclusion of 
the First Punic War, B.C. 241, when the whole island of Sicily 
became a Roman province, with the exception of the dominions 
of Hieron, which consisted of nearly the whole of the east coast 
of the island, with the towns of Acrae, Leontini, Megara, 
Eloris, Neoete, and Tauromenium. This is the district for 
which I suppose them to have been issued, and for which the 
general term IlKEAIflTAN would be more appropriate as 
well as, perhaps, more popular than lYPAKOIIflN. The 
letters II in monogram, which occur upon all the coins of this 
series, may possibly stand for | (? pwvo;) I (upaxoaiou) . " H.

" Hieronymos was assassinated in B.C.215, and immediately 
afterwards a republic was once more proclaimed, and so great 
was the hatred which the tyrannical rule of Hieronymos had 
excited during the short period of one year that the people, 
fearing a restoration, put to death all the members of his 
family. They, nevertheless, did not return to the policy of Hie- 
ron, but were persuaded to resist the Romans, who, conse- 
quently, laid siege to their city in B.C. 2 14. This is not the 
place to recount the story of the celebrated siege and capture 
of the dty by Marcellus. Syracuse fell in B.C. 2 12, and two 
years afterwards the whole of Sicily was a province of the 
Roman Republic. " H. p. 70.

XV. SYRACUSE tJNDER THE ROMANS 

" Syracuse, judging from the style of the copper coins des- 
cribed below, must have been allowed by her conquerors to 
strike copper in her own name for some considerable time after 
her capture. Many of the types also of the following coins are 
very late, especially those wnich are derived from the worship 
of Isis, which can hardly be supposed to have been established 
at Syracuse far more than a century after the capture, if so 
early... They are the last vestiges of Syracusan autonomy. "

THE NEW COINAGE OF GREAT BRITAIN 

Thomas Simon, in begging Charles II. to relieve him, staked his 
reputation on the famous ''Petition Crown, " which he made bold 
to think was a trial piece ** more truly drawn and embossed, more 
gracefully ordered, anJ more accurately engraven than any piece 
from the Dutch." It is unnecessary to say that Mr. Brock and 
Mr. Poynter do not need to be relieved, but they have in some part 
thrown down the glove in the designs 
which they have modelled for the new coin- 
age, and have done not a little to lift the 
study of numismatics from the dark place 
where it lay since Pisirucci ceased to work. 
The terrible despair which settled on a 
money-loving nation at the issue of the 
humorously hideous Jubilee coins is now 
nigh forgotten in the familiarity which, 
once having bred contempt, now breeds 
toleration; but the issue of new designs which should banish the 
national reproach has beenawaited with expectation, and the hope is 
not likely to bring disappointment. At the present moment Sir 
Charles Fremantle and Mr. Robert Hill are very busy at the Mint 
putting the designs which Mr. Brock and Mr. Poynter have finished 
into metal, and the new coins will be issued very shortly. It was 
for the purpose of seeing them and knowing all their history that I 
called on the Deputy Master within the great building by the 
Tower, and had a most interesting conversation with him. The 
plaster casts from the wax moulds lay on a big table, and six of the 
coins were displayed by them in a leather case. It was at once evi- 
dent that the fundamental principle which has dictated change has 
been the idea of removing the very inartistic Queen's head which 
was so severely criticised in the Jubilee year. Sir Charles Fremantle 
was emphatic on this point. 

" The obverse of all the new coins will bear the new head of her 
Majesty which Mr. Brock has designed. It is, as you may see, an 
infinitely artistic thing, giving almost the popular portrait of the 
Queen, and abolishing that ridiculously ill-balanced crown which 
caused the old coin to rise up in a point and to look so very ugly. 



The new head is bold and finely modelled; it makes her Majesty 
look slightly older than the one we have, but the portraiture is 
strong and the character very marked. This obverse will be surround- 
ed by the inscription, * Victoria. Dei. Gra. Britt. Regina.Fid. Def. 
Ind. Imp.,' on all the pieces except the half-crown, which lacks the 
last four words. You will notice that this is the first occasion when 
her Majesty's title as Empress of India has been used on a coin. It 
was understood when she assumed the style that it would be omit- 
ted only in proclamations affecting exclusively the United Kingdom; 
but these coins circulate all over the globe, in our colonies, and, of 
course, in India. It has, therefore, been decided to adopt it on the 
obverse wherever possible. I may tell you that the reverse of the 
five-pound piece, of the sovereign and half-sovereign , will now be 
ornamented with the St. George and the Dragon which Pistrucci 
modelled. We put it on the half-sovereign for the first time, and 
with great effect I think" — the coin is vastly pretty, by far 
the most artistic half-sovereign I have yet seen — *' but the 
crown piece, while having the St. George and the Dragon as 
the reverse, has on the edge of the piece the words, * Decus et tuta- 
men anno regni 56.' Mr. Hill has had great difficulty in execut- 
ing this inscription to his satisfaction, but he has now accomplished 
it by a tri-sectional collar which grips the coin as it is being struck, 
and raises the letters. " 



This crown is a very handsome 
piece , and , with the half-sovereign , 
is entitled to the honours of the new 
issue. The half-crown is pretty but 
lacks the neatness of the Georgian 
coin, and seems to lose something of 
its effect by the number of letters it 
bears. As I am free from the vice of 
heraldry. Sir Charles w^as good enough 
to provide me with a technical de- 
scription of its reverse in the heraldic 
tongue. 
" The design consists of the ensigns armorial of the United King- 
dom contained in a shield surmounted by an imperial crown and 
surrounded by the collar of the Garter, with the inscription *Fid. 
Def. Ind. Imp.' It also bears the words 'Half Crown,' with the 
date of the year, and it is grained on the edge. The florin, the 
reverse of which has been designed by Mr. Poynter, has the same 
obverse as the five-pound piece, but for reverse two royal sceptres 
in saltire behind three shields, the shield on the dexter in bend bear- 
ing the arms of England, that on the sinister, in bend sinister, has 
the arms of Scotland; and that in the base the arms of Ireland; 
between these the three emblems, the Rose, the Thistle, and the 
Shamrock, each shield ensigned with the royal crown and the Gar- 
ter bearing the motto, *Honi soit qui mal y pense' underlying the 
whole. It carries also the double description, * One Florin — Two 
Shillings.' 

" The design for the shilling in reverse is also by Mr. Poynter. It 
has three shields, dexter, arms of England; sinister, arms of Scot- 
land; and base, the arms of Ireland; while between these are the 
emblems. Rose, Shamrock, and Thistle, also 
the Garther with the words * One Shilling' 
and the year of issue. It is an effective coin — 
perhaps the most effective of the silver — and, 
like the others, has the transcendent merit of 
neat and artistic finish. The sixpences, three- 
penny-bits, and copper coins remain as they 
are now, with the exception of the new 
Queen's head, and we are now making no new double florins. The 
coins which will be finished first are the half-crowns and the half- 
sovereigns, and I do not think, when the latter are issued, I shall 
hear so many complaints from people who have taken new farthings 
for the smaller golden coins. Such persons at any time are not 
deserving of much pity, but, with the new issue, they should 
deserve none at all. " 

I am of the same opinion, and, indeed, in the whole of this coin- 
age the attempt to make the value of the coin very evident on its 
face is clearly seen. Mr. Brock will get much praise for his work, 
and the head of her Majesty, showing her with the coronet and 
lace veil, will compare w^ith anything done during the century. If 
there be any fault to be found with the reverses of the silver coins, 
it is in the number of words which they bear, these giving a suggest- 
ion, perhaps, of ill balance and want of rotundity. But the whole 
work is so good that the wretched Jubilee issue is not to be compar- 
ed with it; and we are on the eve of an issue of coins which will in 
no little part redeem the censure of half a centur}'.

fUNE COLLECTION DES DOUZE G£3ARS 

OitendiU mihi numi^ma censvs... Cujus est 
imago htK, et superscript to? 

(Matth. XXII, 19-20.) 

Nous avons vu r^cemment, dans un chateau de la Vendue, une belle 
collection numismatique, et notre attention a 6t6 particuli^rement 
appelee sur un tableau int^ressant et d*un genre tout nouveau : 
c'^tait une s6rie, encadr^e avec luxe, de douze m^dailles (ou plut6t 
monnaies), grands bronzes authentiques des premiers empereurs 
romains. Les exemplaires ^taient remarquablement conserves, et 
ces physionomies accentu^es, rappelant tant d'iv^nements, produi- 
saient une certaine impression... Le propriitaire , arch^ologue 
distingu6, nous a ^galement montr^ un 6crin pr^cieux (qu'il n'ouvre 
pas pour tous les profanes), et qui renfermait une autre suite de 
monnaies des mfimes empereurs en or (aurei) et en argent (denarii)^ 
presque tous i fleur de coin : un vrai r^gal pour les yeux d'un 
numismate ! Cest qu'en effet I'histoire romaine est la plus grande 
du monde, et une collection complete de cts types des empereurs, 
avec toutes les l^gendes historiques et mythologiques inscrites sur 
les revers, est une des plus int^ressantes i tous les points de vue'. 
L'histoire ancienne n'onre pas un Etat qui ait atteint Timportance 
et la dur^e de I'Empire romain : cinq si^cles de r^publique et pr^s 
de quinze si^cles de monarchie ont fait du nom romain le plus grand 
de l'histoire, et comme on I'a souvent dit, la moitii des sidcles 
^coul^s a vu planer sur Thumanit^ le genie du peuple romain. Les 
inscriptions et les types divers des monnaies, v^ritables monuments 
de rhistoire, rappellent ce genie et font connaitre la vie sociale et 
intellectuelle de ce peuple. Sa numismatique, qui est la plus privil^- 
gite, prisente une suite sans lacunes des annales de la Ripublique 
et de rEmpire, et les Romains ont ainsi fait passer i la postirit^ le 
souvenir de leurs grandes actions ^. 

1. La numismatique est une des branches de rarch^ologie qui nous a laiss^ le 
plus de connaissances et de dt^tails sur les religions anciennes, sur T^tat politique 
des villes et des peuples, sur la gtJographie et sur l'histoire de contr«Jes dont la tra- 
dition ^crite n*a gu6re fait connaitre que les noms. Chaoue pit*ce est un monument 
numismatique contemporain de T^venement auquel il fait allusion, et, ^ I2 diffe- 
rence des textes des pontes et des prosateurs, 11 ne peut ^tre ah^r^ ni par la 
transcription, ni par des citations partielles ou tronqu^es (^A. de BartMemy^ membre 
de rinstitut). 

2. « De tous les peuples du monde (dit Bossutt), le plus fier et le plus hardi, 
« raais tout ensemble le plus r^glti dans ses conseils, le plus constant dans ses 
a maximes, le plus avis^, le plus laborieux, et enfin le plus patient, a ^x^ le peuple 
a romain. De tout cela s'est form^e la meilleure milice et la politique la plus pr^- 
« voyante, la plus ferme et la plus suivie qui fut jamais. » 

« Sans doute TEmpire a produit des monstres (dit Victor Duruy), mais heureu- 



II y avait i TExposition universelle de 1878, k Paris, une suite 
admirable de monnaies romaines, en or et en pieces de choix, qui 
fut malheureusement dispers^e au vent des enchferes, pour plus de 
quatre cent mille francs. — On y voyait, class^es dans un ordre 
ni^thodique : 

Des monnaies des families republicaines dites consulaires : celles de Sylla et des 
trois Pompte (80-17 avant J^sus-ChristJ ; 

Celles de la famille de Jules C^sar : Ci^ar, Octave-Auguste, Caius et Lucius 
C^sar, Tib^re, Germanicus, Caligula, Drusus, Antonia^ Agrippine, Claude, 
Neron (17 avant- 68 apr^s J^sus-Christ) ; 

Les usurpateurs militaires (68-69) • Galba, Othon, Vitellius ; 

La premiire famille flavienne (6()-^6) : Vespasien, Domilille, Titus, /m/iV, Domitien, 
Domitia ; 

Les Antonins (96-102) : Nerva, Trajan, Plotine. Marciane, Matidie, Hadrien, 
Sabine^ iElius, Antonm le Pieux, Faustine, Marc-Aur^le, Faustine jeune, Lucius 
VtJrus, Lucille, Commode, Crispine ; 

Les empereurs pretoriens et syriens (193-235) : Pertinax, Dide-Julien, Manlia- 
Scantilla, Didia-Clara, Pescennius Niger, Albin, Septime S^vdre, Julia, Julia- 
Domna, Caracalla, Gita, Plautille, Macrin, Diadum^nien, Hdiogabale, Julia 
Maesa, Julia Socemias, Alexandre S^v^re, Uranius Antonin ; 

Vanarchie militaire (235-268) : Maximin, Gordien d'Afrique, Gordien III, 
Tranquillina, Philippe p6rc, Otacilia, Philippe fils, Trajan-D6ce, Etruscilla, 
Herennius Etruscus, Hostilien, Tr^bonien Galle, Volusien, Val^rien, Gallien, 
Salonim, Salonin, Postume, Loelien, Victorien, T<Jtricus; 

L^s princes illyriens (268-284) : Claude le Gothique, Aur^lien Florian, Tacite, 
Probus, Carin, Numdrien, Magnia Urbica, Nigrinien, Julien le tyran; 

Titrarchie et seconde famille jlavienne (284-395) : Diocl(Jtien , Maximien THercule , 
Caransius, Allectus, Constance-Chlore, Gal^re-Maximien, Valeria, S^v^re II, 
Maximin II d'Aza, Maxence, Alexandre le Tyran, Licinius p^re et fils, Constantin 
le Grand, sainte Hilhie et Fausta, Crispus, Constantin II, Constant I, Constance II, 
Vetranion, Magnence, D^cence, Constance Galle, Julien II TApostat, Jovien, 
Valentinien, Valence, Procope, Gratien, Valentinien II, Theodore, iHacilla, 
Magnus-Maximus, Eugene ; 

Et ensuite : V Empire d'Occident (395-47$), avec Honorius et ses successeurs; — - 
V Empire d'Orient (395-1453), avec Arcadius et tous ses successeurs dans les 
8 dynasties : Thiodosienne, de Thrace, de Justinien, des Wraclides, Isaurientu, et des 
trois Michel, Macidonique, des Comnlms et Ducas, et des Paliologues. 

Toutes ces monnaies ^taient du module de Vaureus ordinaire, 
appele solidus k la fin de I'Empire. II y avait , en outre , plusieurs 
petits et grands midaillons en or de Gallien, Aur^lien, Constantin, 
sainte H^lfene, Valens, etc. — C^tait une magnifique collection. 

— Revenons k la s6rie des dou^je Cesar s que nous avons vue en Ven- 
due, dans les tro^ rn^taux, et dont la reunion parait avoir tit mspirce 
par la lecture deThistorien Suetone. Nous donnerons ici les figures et 
la description des petits modules seulement de ces belles nionnaies, 
avec quelques notes — souvenirs classiques ^ — sur chacun des 
empereurs, pouvant riveiller Tinterfit et le goiit des coUectionneurs 
pour ces pr^cieux restes de Tantiquit^. 

LES DOUZE CliSARS 

Jules Cesar, Octave Auguste, Tibire, Caligula, Claude, Neron, Galba, 
Othon, Vitellius, Vespasien, Titus, \Domitien. 

(II est 4 remarquer que les six derniers ^taient 
Strangers d la famille de Jules C^sar.) 

JULES CfeSAR 
N6 Tan 100 avant J.-C. — Consul en 60. — Gouverneur de la 
Gaule en 58. — Dictateur de 48 i\ 44. — Assassin^ en 44 avant J.-C, 
i rage de 56 ans. 




« sement il ^tait trop vaste pour que les folies et les cruauttis d'un seul homme, si 
« grandes fussent-elles , pussent le troubler beaucoup. Pour les empereurs (je ne 
« parle pas des fous, comme Caligula, N^ron, Elagabale, mais des oolitiques 
« comme Tib^re et Domitien), il y a deux histoires. Comme leur dieu Janus , ils 
<( ont double visage. Si on les voit a Rome, au milieu de la noblesse, qui est centre 
« eux , dit Sudtone , en conspiration permanente , ce sont d'ext^crables tyrans ; si 
« Ton ne voit que I'Empire, ils peuveni passer pour des princes fermes et vigilants. 
« II faut les regarder sous ce double aspect. D'ordinaire on n'en montre qu'un : 
« ne cachons pas celui-ci, mais n'oublions pas I'autre. Que le prince du S^nat reste 
« done avec ses delateurs et ses bourreaux, les mains teintes de sang, et que 
« Tempereur apparaisse avec les traditions de paix publique et d'ordre commenc^es 
« par Auguste, continudes par Tib^re, Claude, Vespasien, cet infatigable travail- 
« leur qui voulut mourir debout; par ses deux fils, par les Antonins et Septime 
« Stivfere, qui, charg^ d'ans et de gloire, donnait encore pour dernier mot d ordre 
« k ses soldats : « Travaillons ! » 

I . Nous avons fait suivre la description de chaque monnaie d'une petite note remu- 
nerative sur le Char reprtisent^, — la numismatique pure (Jtant un peu s^che pour 
la g^n^ralit^ des lecteurs.

Cuius Julius Caesar est un des plus grands hommes d*Etat et de guerre de Tanti- 
quit^. II est issu de la famille Julia et neveu de Marius. Proscrit dans sa jeunesse, 
il revint k Rome apr^s la mort du dictateur Sylla, Nomm^ preteur ' en 62 av. J.-C. 
(692 de Rome), puis consul, il forma avec Pompte et Crassus un triumvirat qui 
leur donnait le pouvoir absolu. Gouverneur des Gaules pour cinq ans (60 av. J.-C), 
puis pour trois ans de plus, il les soumit apr^s avoir d^fait Vercingetorix i Al^ia (52) ; 
il p^n^tra mSme dans la Grande-Bretagne. Son commandement lui ayant dt^ 
enlev^ par le S^nat 4 I'instigation de Pomp^e, il franchit les Alpes, entra dans 
Rome, et se fit nommer dictateur. Vainqueur de Pomp^e d Pharsale (48 av. J.C.), 
il le poursuivii en Egypte ou il d<Jtrdna PtolcJm^e XII qu'il rempla^a par Cleopdtre, 
Vainqueur du roi de Pont en trois jours (yeni, vidi^ vici), puis de Tarm^e du S^nat 
en Afrique , et des derniers partisans de Pomp^e en Espagne (45), il revint A 
Rome et fut nomm6 dictateur perp^tuel. II pardonna a ses ennemis, embellit la 
ville, fondad'utiles ^tablissements et r^forma le calendrier; mais les rt^publicains , 
craignant qu'il n'aspirdt a la royaut^, Tassassin^rent au milieu du S^nat, le i $ mars. 
Tan 44 avant J^sus-Christ. — Jules C<^sar fut aussi un orateur et un ^crivain 
remarquable ; ses Commentaires sur la guerre des Gaules sont un modde en ce 
genre; mais sa gloire militaire et politique efface sa gloire litteraire. Cest le 
premier dictateur ou imperator (c'est-i-dire alors general victorieux) dont le portrait 
tut autoris^ par le S^nat sur la monnaie d'Etat frapptie a Rome. Ce droit n'existait 
auparavant que dans les provinces pour les g^n^raux commandant en chef et pour 
les besoins des armies. Sylla lui-mfime, comme dictateur, n'avait pas os6 
enfreindre cette loi.

Caius Julius Octavianus Caesar Augustus est, en rt^alit^, le premier Empereur 
romain. Connu jusqu*d son av^nement sous le nom d'OctaviuSy il fut, k la mort 
du s^nateur son p^re, adopts par Jules C^sar dont il ^tait le petit-neveu. Apr^s 
I'assassinat de ce dernier, Marc-Anioine ayant voulu s'emparer du pouvoir fut battu 
^ Mod^ne par Octaz'ey mais il se r^concilia avec lui, et forma, en s*ad}oignant 
LepiduSy le fameux triumvirat pendant lequel le parti r^publicain fut an?anti. 
Octave et Antoine se partag^rent I'Empire ; mais, k la suite de plusieurs d^m^Ms, 
Octave rompit avec Antoine et le battit k Actium. De retour d Rome, il re^ut les 
titres (Timperator (non comme g^n^ral, mais comme Empereur) et d' Augustus y et 
il devint aussi clement qu'il avait M cruel auparavant. II pacifia TEmpire, fit le 
recensement du peuple, orna la ville de divers Edifices et r^para les routes 
publiques. Beaucoup de m^dailles rappellent tous ces faits. Ce fut sous son re«»ne 
que la litt^rature latine brilla du plus vif ^clat avec Virgile, Horace y Ovidt,

Pannoniens et les Germains qu'il d^m compl^tement. II re^ut alors le Consul at , 
mais fut plus tard exil^ k Rhodes k cause de son ambition. Rappel^ k Rome Tan 2 
de J.-C, il ^pousa Julie, fille d' Auguste, qui Tadopta, et le d^signa plus tard pour 
son h^ritier. A la mort d'Auguste, Tib^re, ayant pris le pouvoir, fit bientdt 
empoisonner Germanicus, son tr^re, dont il ^tait jaloux. En ran 17, il remporta 
quelques succ^s en Syrie et r^tablit douze villes d'Asie renvers^es par un tremble- 
ment de lerre (tnddaille commemorative). D'un caract^re defiant , et second^ par 
S^jan, son favori, Tib^re fit tomber plusieurs t^tes illustreset se retira, k 69 ans, a 
Capr^e, d*oii il gouverna I'empire pendant pr^s de dix ans, tout en se livrant a la 
d^bauche. II mourut en 37, ^toufft^ par Caligula. — Malgr^ sa cruaut^ et ses crimes,

furent heureux ; mais, k la suite d'une maladie qui altera sa raison, il se livra k tous 
les exc^s : en moins de deux ans il dt^pensa I'^pargne de Tibdre (300 millions); 
toujours en guerre avec la noblesse de Rome , il la d^cima , et il ^puisa les pro- 
vinces par ses exactions , prenant la fortune des citoyens riches, souvent avec leur

— ^ P^tif hrm^e comm^moratif de la calibration des jeux quinquen- 
naux, I'an ^13 de Rome, 60 de J.-C. (Cohen, n° 99). 

Lucius Domitius Nero est fils de Domitius iEnobarbus et d'Agrippine , fiUe de 
Germanicus, qui, devenue veuve, ^pousa Claude et lui fit adopter N^ron, de pre- 
ference a Briiannicus, son propre fils. II montra d'abord quelque douceur et laissa 
sa m^re r^gner en son nom ; mais ses fougueuses passions firent bientdt explosion : 
en 55, il fit empoisonner son fr^re Britannicus, et en 59, son caractfere devenant 
encore plus f^roce, il fit p^rir Agrippine et s'abandonna d toutes sortes d'exc^s. 
Aprte avoir r^pudi^ Octavie, sa femme, il la fit mettre d mort, ainsi que les ^cri- 
vzmsSenkque^ LucaiUy Pe'trotie, et beaucoup d'auires. En 64, Rome fut incendi«'e 
par ses ordres, et il en accusa les chr^tiens, qu'il fit torturer. Au reiour d*un 
voyage en Gr^ce, oil il ^tait allti pour faire briller ses talents de po^te et d'hisirion, 
il apprit la r^volte des g^ncJraux Vindex et Gaiha (bS). Ce dernier fut proclam^ 
empereur par les pr^ioriens, et le S^nat d^clara Neron ennemi public. II s enfuit et 
dut se donner la mort. Avec lui s'^teignit la race des Ce'sars qui, depuis le grand 
Jules, ne s'^tait d'ailleurs continu^e que par adoption. — N^ron, au milieu de ses 
crimes et de ses vices, se montrait protecteur des arts et liberal, comme le ti^moignent 
de nombreuses m^ailles rappclant des distributions faites au peuple (congiarum 
primum^ secuttdunty etc.), et il insiitua des exercices militaires appel^s decursio,

Serinus Sulpicius Galba, aprte avoir ^t^ consul sous Tib^re, commanda les 
armies en Germanic, fut gouverneur de TAfrique sous Claude et de I'Espagne sous 
Nitron. S'^tant r^voli^ contre ce dernier en 68, il fut proclam^ empereur par le 
S^nat, mais son avarice lui fit n^gliger de donner des gratifications aux soldajs, et, 
d rinsiigation d'Othon , il fut assassin^ par les pr^toriens en 69, apr^ 8 mois de

Marcus Salvius Otho fut le premier mari de Popple el un favori de N^ron qui le 
nomma gouverneur de Lusitanie. Ambitieux et perdu de dettes, il prit part d la 
rdvolte de Galba, mais, n'ayant pas ^t^ choisi par celui-ci pour lui succ^er, il se 
fit proclamer empereur par quclques pr^toriens , et excita la sedition dans laquelle 
p^rit Galba. Son gouvemement , qui ne dura que 3 mois, fut doux et mod^re ; 
mais, d la meme ^poque, I'arm^e de Germanie, ayant proclam^ ViUllius empereur, 
marchait sur Tlialie, et Othon, vaincu 4 B^driac, se donna la mort en pr&ence de 
son arm^e.

Aulus VileUius passa sa jeuneste avec Tib^re d Caprt^e, fut un compagnon de 
Wron, puis devint, en 48, consul en Afrique, oil il resta 2 ans. Nomme, en 68, 
gouverneur militaire de la Basse-Germanie, par Galba, il fut, k la nouvelle de la 
mort de ce dernier (69), saluii empereur par les legions, tandis qu 'Othon ^tait

^tabli sur le trdne que Tarmt^e d'Orient proclama Vespasien, Antonius Primus, 
g^n^ral de ce nouvel empereur, vint s'emparer de Rome, et se fit livrer Vitellius 
que le peuple mit en pieces. II avait r^gn^ 8 mois, et ne s'^tait fait remarquer que 
par sa gloutonnerie, ses vices et sa cruaut^.

de Jud^e; il y remporta de grands avantages et n'avait plus que Jerusalem a 
prendre, lorsque le trdne devint vacant par la mort de Galba et les qucrelles 
d'Othon et de Vitellius. Proclam<i empereur par I'arn.^e d*Orient, il envoya en 
Italie deux g^n^raux qui le firent reconnaitre;puis, laissani en Judee son fils Titus, 
qui s*empara de Jerusalem (en 70), il prit possession de Rome. II pacifia la Gaule, 
agitte par CiviliSy chef des Bataves, envoya dans la Grande-Bretagne Agricvla, qui

DIE STADTANSIGHT VON THORN AUF MUNZEN UND MEDAILLEN 



Da Thorn in diesem Jahre das hundertjahrige Jubiliium seiner 
Angehorigkeit an Preussen feiert und infolge seiner Lage und starken 
Befestigung von hoher politischer Bedeutung ist, diirften auch die 
Mtinzen dieser Stadt flir weitere Kreise von Interesse sein. 

In der Stellung zu der Oberherrlichkeit Polens hatte sich die 
Stadt stets eine gewisse Selbstandigkeit gewahrt und das Recht der 
Munzpragung bis zum Jahre 1765 (von 1629 an), fast ununter- 
brochen ausgeiibt. 

Auch darin hat Thorn mit den freien Reichsstadten Deutsch- 
lands eine gewisse Aehnlichkeit, dass es wie zum Beispiel Augs- 
burg, Frankfurt a/ M., Nurnberg, Regensburg n.a.M., seit Anfang 
des ryten Jahrhunderts auf die grosseren Miinzen und Medaillen 
in Gold oder Silber die Ansicht der Stadt aufpragen Hess. 

Es folgt eine Beschreibung sammtlicher bekannter Miinzen und 
Medaillen welche ein Bild der Stndt auf dem Revers tragen. 

/. Brandthaler 162^. 

In die Wirren des 50jahrigen Krieges wurde auch Thorn hinein- 
gezogen, indem es von dem schwedischen Feldmarschall Wrangel, 
am 16. Februar 1629, bestiirmt und in Brand geschossen wurde. 
Die Tapferkeit der Thorncr Burger, unter Fiihrung des Biirger- 
meisters Bruss, zwang die Sclnveden zum Ruckzuge und gab Ver- 
anlassung zur Pragung von Thalern mit der Stadtansicht durch 
den Miinzmeister Hans Lippe. 

Es giebt drei Hauptarten dieser Thaler, die sammtlich auf dem 
Avers das Stadtwappen und eine dies bezugliche Inschrift ; auf dem 
Revers das Bild der brennenden Stadt zeigen . 

a) Der erste Stempel hat auf dem Avers einen Engel, der das 
Stadtwappen halt, daneben sind rechts und links Ranken. Darunter 
liest man in scchs Zeilen :

der alten Holzbriicke und mehrere Schiffe und Kahne. — Die Um- 
schrift lautet :

Dieser von Madai Nr. 5133 beschriebene sehr seltene Thaler be- 
findet sich im Kgl. Munzcabinet zu Berlin. 

b) Der zw^ite Stempel ist auf dem Avers dem vorigen gleich. 
Auf dem Revers unterscheidet er sich von jenem dadurch, dass 

die Hiiuser spitzere Dacher tragen. 

Auch dieser Thaler ist sehr selten und wnrd, wo er im Handel 
vorkommt, mit 100 Markbezahlt. (Abgebildet ist er bei Beier. )

schlage in Gold eiebt, ist in mehrfacher Beziehung den vorigen 
unahnlich. Auf dem Avers ist der das Wappen haltende Engel

linken Ufer einen Teil, woraufSchilf und ein Baum. — Die Costume 
Jnd auf diesem Stempel die des i8ten Jahrhunderts. 

Die Darstellung der Stadt auf den genannten Munzen und Denk- 
miinzen ist von um so grosserem Interesse, als heute manche der 
dargestellten Gebiiude entweder verschwunden sind oder ihrem 
Aussehen nach sich verandert haben . Verschwunden ist die Catha- 
rinenkirche, die Georgenkirche, das Dominikanerkloster, das Neu- 
stadtische Rathhaus, die Lorenzkirche, die alte Holzbriicke; ver- 
andert ist das Rathhaus der Altstadt, welchem im Jahre 1702 der 
hohe Turm herabgeschossen wurde ; an Stelle des Neustadtischen 
Rathhaus steht eine Kirche; an Stelle der Holzbriicke ist etwas 
oberhalb eine steinerne Eisenbahnbriicke gebaut. Endlich ist das 
fruher auf der Lorenzkirche befindlich gewesene massiv vergoldete 
Kreuz auf den Mittelturm der Marienkirche gesetzt >yorden, nach- 
dem man die denselben kronende Wetterfahne beseitigt hatte.

UNBEKANNTE SPOTTMUNZE VON ZURICH 

Die nebenstehend abgebildete, bis jeizt nur in diesem Exemplar 
bekannte, rathselhafte Medaille wurde vor einigen Jahren bei Erdar- 
beiten im Flussbett der Limmat bei Zurich gefunden. Sie besteht 
aus Blei und zeigt auf der Vorderseite ein Brustbild en face mit 
auffallend grosser Perrucke. Die Riickseite ist glatt und iragt den 
Rest eines ovalen, nicht mehr entzifferbaren Stempels — wohl den 
des Giessers dieser Medaille. Die Perrucke liisst das Stuck in die 

erste Halfte des XVIII. Jahrhunderts 
datiren, und ihre iibermassig grosse 
Darstellung, sowie die sehr stark 
hervortretende Nase, Stim und Au- 
genbrauen, die grossen Augen und 
der lange Hals — kurz, das ganze, 
anscheinend absichtlich karikirte Ge- 
sicht — lassen vermuthen, dass wir 
es hier mit einer Spotttniin:(e (me-

A DICTIONARY 
of Coin Denominations of both Ancient and Modem Times, 

with an account of their origin y value and meaning, 

ANGELOT — ACKEY 

{Continued from page 4-]) 

ANGELOT (a small angel or angelet), a gold coin struck by 
Henry VI of England for currency in France. 

It is thus described in Ainslie's ** Anglo-French Coinage" (1830; 
p. 29) : « Obv. An angel standing behind two shields, that on the 
right displaying the arms of France, the second those of France and 
England quarterly; an arm rests on each, and his wings afford the 
same impartial protection ; the pinion-joints reach as high as his 
eyes, the left touches the somewhat fantastic head-dress of the 
angel; the lower part of his body seems to have been forgotten, 
although ample room is left between the shields : a faint line is 
perceptible between the principal objects and the inner cord of the 
legendary circle. The legend reads, HENRICVS : FRACORV : ET : 
ANGLIE : REX; — j^. A Latin cross, perfectly simple in all its 
details, is placed between a lily and a lion passant gardant. Inscrip- 
tion, XPC : VINCIT : XPC : REGNAT : XPC : IMPERAT. — 
Mint mark on each side, a lily. Weight : 36^ grs Troy, or about 
44 1 P.iris marc grains. Fineness : 23! fine and| alloy — (PI. i, 
n" 12.^ " 

Snelling in his work '* On the Coins of Great Britain, France 
and Ireland" informs us that the coin was probably minted, by an 
ordonnance of June 24 *^ 1427, and that it was current for 15 sols, 
being \ of the Salute. 

In **Les Monnaies royales de France", M. H. Hoffman values 
the angelot at 40 francs, though Snelling, an earlier authority, 
speaks of it as being extremely rare. 

The " Cabinet de France" possesses a pi^fort of the angelot with 
same description of obv. as the above, but different rev. On this, the 
legend is ET " FIAT • PAX • IN • VIRT VTE • TVA, and the type, a 
cross within tressure , on the four angles of which a crowned fleur 
de lys. 

ABASSI, a Persian silver coin of the approximative value of 6**. 
.JThe name probably originates from the Abassy dirhem, which 
weighed 43 grains of the fineness of 960 to '970 silver. 

ABBEY PIECES, various countries; Brass, possibly current for 
small sums, but chiefly used in computation as Jetons. (See ** The 
Numismatic Dictionary, by Peter Whelan.) The term ** Abbey 
pieces " is also used as a general appellation of the coins issued 
oy ecclesiastics. 

" ABRA, a small silver coin formerly current in Poland, and of the 
value of I sh. 

ABUQUELP, a small silver coin, current in Egypt, of the value 
•x>f 30 medini i^about i s. 6 d.). 

ACFJESON (from Atkinson, mint master) Scots Billon, value 8**. 

The latest coinage ordered of eightpenny and fourpenny pieces 
was on the 30 ^^ of July 1 588 (under James VI), when " the gener- 
all Thomas Achesoun, maister of his hienes cunyiehous, and

Ttheris officiaris of the said cunyiehous", were commanded to fabri- 
cate eighty stones weight of these pieces, amounting to a currency 
vakie of € 11520, to defray the expenses of an expedition under 
Francis, Earl of Bothwell, to repress insubordination in the Northern 
Isles and the adjacent mainland districts. In certain contemporary 
documents the eightpenny and fourpenny pieces are styled Achesouns 
and half'AcljcsounSy probably from having been the first base coin- 
age made when this Thomas Achesoun was master of the mint, an 
office which he held from 1581 to 161 1. (Burns, The coinage of 
Scotland, vol. 11, p. 405). 

ACHTZEHNER, a Swedish silver coin. 

ACKEY (from Ackee, seed of Guinea, Af.) an English colonial 
cpki issued by the African Company on the Gold Coast. The fol- 
c- Towing description is given by Atkins in his *' Coins and Tokens of 
the Possessions and Colonies of the British Empire". 

1. ACKEY or CROWN. Obv. G. R. in monogram within a 
wreath, a crown above divides the date, which is 17-96. ^. Shield 
of arms with supporters and crest, FREE TRADE TO AFRICA. 
BY ACT OF PARLIMENT. 1750. 

2. A bronze proof of the above has the spelling of PARLIAMENT 
corrected. 

3. HALF-ACKEY. Similar to No. i, excepting insize and value, 
and that there are no supporters on obverse. 

4. QUARTER- ACKEY. Two Takoe piece, similar excepting in 
size and value. 

5. EIGHTH-ACKEY. One Takoe piece, similar, but without 
legend on reverse. 

6. ACKEY. Obv. Bust of George HI to right, laureated GEOR- 
GIVS III. D : G : BRITANNIAR : REX F : D : Upon the trunca- 
tion of the neck there is a small H. and under the oust i ACKEY 
TRADE 1818. ^. Arms, supporters, &c. as before. FREE TRADE* 
TO -AFRICA • BY • ACT • OF • PARLIAMENT. 1750. 

7. HALF-ACKEY. 1/2 ACKEY TRADE similar to last except- 
ing in size and value. 

There are silver, pewter, and bronze proofs of all these pieces. 

The African company, which struck these coins, was constituted 
by Act of Padiament in 1750, and abolished in 1821 , its forts and 
settlements being transferred to the Crown. 

( To he continued.) 



CORRESPONDENCE 

A Correspondent writes that while coin collecting in Southern 
India he came across a very peculiar medal. The observe bore a 
representation of a Fort, from one of the bastions of which a flag 
was flying; the Fort was on the top of a rock. The following 
inscription was on one of the sides of the medal : — 



i.jJo> Jjdi 



^ ^v'^ 



J^dJU 



** A medal (given for) bravery for the victory at Manduri Fort. " 
The reverse has a kind of mango device bearing the date iqp. (1920) 
and an inscription which he cannot read. He wishes to know who 
struck this medal and why? '* Madras Times. " 

The Correspondent who has kindly furnished us with the Extract 
above-given adds : — '* Un ortunately I have not been able to find 
the man who has the medal, for the manager of the Madras Times 
refuses to forward letters to correspondents. 

What struck me as interesting about the description of the 
medal was as follows : — The date 1920 of the Hegira is of course 
incorrect, but an old native gentleman who is collecting medals tor 
me, informs me that the date is probably 1220. The 2 and the 9 
being somewhat similar in character. Now 1220 of the Hegira is 
1806 A. D., and I learn from the ** North Arcot Manuel " — 
a Government publication — that Manandur is a Taluk in the 
Vellore District : I therefore think it possible that the medal may 
be the one ordered in G. O. G. G. Fort St. George 24'^ July 1806, 
mentioned on page 239 of Capt. Tancred's work. 

I will tell my native friend Tan old retired officer") to find out more 
about it — if you think it sufficiently interesting. ' 

Yours, truly. 

E. C. M. 



Messrs Spink & Son. 
Sirs, 

In the last issue of your very useful little circular I read with 
great interest Mr. Hyde Clarke's note on forgeries in Smyrna. The 
cunning of the Turkish and Greek forgers there would almost put 
to shame some of the best out-turns of the mild and clever Hindu 
in this line, while Birmingham would seem to supply them with a 
considerable number of fairly executed copies. My object now in 
writing is to recommend any numismatist or lover oi antiques who 
may find himself in these parts to pay a visit to the small village of 
Panduma on the south shores of the Sea of Marmara. Just on the 
opposite side of a small bay lie the ruins of the old city of Cyzicus 
and for some reason or another collectors never seem to find their 
way there. The result is that antiquities areaglut in the market and 
there is no demand for forgeries, and hence their dearth. When 
there, a short time ago, I made quite a pretty little collection of coins 
and other curios and paid even for some mirly rare specimens but 
little above the metal value, while old Roman lamps (examples of 
Byzantine glass, &c.), could be had for a mere trifle although in 
Smyrna the dealers ask a considerable price for them. The ruins 
themselves will well repay a visit, and as the little town can be reach- 
ed in about twelve hours (if I remember aright) by a bi-weekly 
steamer from Constantinople, it is curious that it should be so little 
known. 

Yours, &c. 

R. H. C. TUFNELL.

Arnot, J.-H. Gooch-JoUey, and A.-W. Hankin were elected Mem- 
bers. — Mr. H. Montagu exhibited two rare gold coins, in fine 
condition, of the Empress Galeria Valeria, wife of Galerius Maxi- 
mianus, reverse, veneri victrici, one struck at Nicomedia, the other 
at Siscia. — Mr. Packe read a paper on the coinage of the Norman 
kings of England, in which he contended that the various types of 
the coins were not all issued one after the other successively in 
point of time, but that some were contemporary with others; and 
he also argued that the dies for each type must have been made at 
some one centre, or by one author and nis assistants, and that these 
were not the same in the case of all the types, some of which were 
evidently copies of others. On these grounds he suggested modifica- 
tions in the usual chronological arrangement of the coins. In con- 
clusion, he traced signs of German influence in the designs of the 
types, which he attributed to the German origin of the leading 
goldsmiths then settled in England, such as Theodoric and Otto, 
in the family of which latter the office of die engraver to the Mint 
became hereditary. 

British Museum. — Mr. H. A. Grueber has been appointed to the 
Assistant- Keepership of Coins and Medals in the British Museum, 
vacant by the promotion of Dr. Barclay Head to the Keepership of 
the department. Mr. Grueber's appointement will be welcome 
news to students and collectors of all classes of coins and medals. 
His extensive and minute knowledge in every branch of numismat- 
ics, both English and foreign, has made Mr. Grueber deservedly 
one of the most useful officers in the Museum. The Department of 
Coins and Medals has for many years, under the direction of 
Prof. R. S. Poole, occupied a leading position among the coin cabi- 
nets of Europe, and we have no doubt that his successor^ Dr. 
Barclay Head, and his able staff* of assistants, will continue to add to 
the reputation for scholarship which they have already gained.

NECROLOGY 



A correspondent at Athens writes to us : Mr. John Demetrion 
who died in Alexandria last month, was well-known by name to 
all collectors of antiquities, and had he only lived a little longer the 
numismatic collection of Athens would have surpassed that of any 
country in the world, for he died in the midst of his negotiations 
for purchasing some rare Egyptian coins, by the addition of which 
his collection would have been well-nigh complete. As it is, he 
leaves a handsome collection to the nation, and it must not be for- 
gotten that he made a gift of his former collection of Egyptian coins, 
consisting of coins struck from the times of the Persians down to 
those of the later Romans. Besides the above gift, Mr. Demetrion 
had also presented the Greek nation with a valuable collection of 
Egyptian antiquities, consisting mostly of statuettes and ornaments 
from remote Egyptian times down to the Roman period. The Cen- 
tral Museum is arranging this copious collection in two rooms which 
have been purposely laid out to receive it. They are decorated in 
Egyptian fashion, according to the designs of the German architect 
Kaweraw. —

Monthly Numismatic Circular

Wc think our readers will be interested by the foilowing 
extract from " Stevenson*s Dictionary of Roman coins " in 
reference to the interesting types catalogued above : 

** Judaea was conquered by Pompey in A.R.691 B.C. 67, and 
given at first to Herod, then to Antiochus, next to Philip, and 
to a second Herod, and after their time it became a province of 
the Roman empire. But, revolting against the tyranny and exac- 
tions of Gessius Florus, the people of Judaea waged a long and 
bloody war with the Romans. Flavius Vespasianus was, howe- 
ver, at length 'sent by Nero against them with a vast army, and 
brought them again into complete subjection to the Roman 
power. He took and entirely destroyed Jerusalem, and since 
that time the Jews, driven from their country, have been 
scattered as wanderers over the face of the earth. 

It was under Vespasian that those medals were first struck 
which record the victories gained by the Romans over the 
Jews. They bear the inscription of J VDAEA, JVDAEA CAPTA, 
JVDAEA DEVICTA, DE JVDAEIS, and their types are most 
interestingly allusive to the conquest of Judaea,' and to that 
awfully de structive war which ended in making ** J erusj jen^^ 
h eap of stones " . — *Tnere are coins of Titus, bearingTKesame 
character. — On a large brass of Hadrian (in the Farnese 
Museum), with the legend JVDAEA, the vanquished country is 
personified by a woman bending the knee before that Emperor. 
She is accompanied by three children bearing palms, and who, 
according to Winckelman, are intended to represent the three 
divisions of the province, namely, Judaea, Galilaea, and Peiraea. 
Another coin of the same emperor represents a togated figure 
(Hadrian himself), standing opposite a female clothed in the 
stola, and holding a patera over an altar, by the side of which 
is a victim for sacrifice. By the side of the woman stands a 
child; and two children, bearing palms, approach the emperor : 
in the exergue is inscribed JVDAEA. 

On a ve ry rare f^rst brass p f Vespasia n, bearing tlie usual 
rial - . ~ 



mark of SenatoriaTautnority, but without legend, the Emperor, 
with radiated head, is represented standing, with his right foot 



placed on a ship's prow, or on a helmet ; he holds the hasta in 
his left, and a victoriola in his right hand ; before his feet an 
old man is kneeling, behind whom, under a palm tree, stands 
a woman in a tunic, raising her hands towards the Prince, in 
the act of supplication. 

There is a large bronze coin, which Vaillant gives as struck 
under J^tus, and whFch ig'^s with it in type except that the 
head ofme Emperor is helmeted. This medal is described to 
bear the legend of! VDAEA. 

JVDAEA CAPTA. S. C. — On the well-known coin of 
Vespasian, in Ja^^gebras^ Judaea appears under the figure of a 
woinSTrptlotHedmTfumc, with short sleeves : she sits, in the 
altitude of extreme sorrow, at the foot of a palm, which tree is 
peculiarly the growth of Palestine : behind her stands the 
Emperor habited in military vestments, holding a spear in his 
right and the parazonium in his left hand ; and with a buckler 
or a helmet under his left foot. — A medal in the same metal, 
and of the same module, struck under Titus, exhibits the same 
legend and a similar type. 

The coin presents the emblem of Judaea, whose inhabitants, 
not easily to be ruled over, were compelled at length to crouch 
under the Roman yoke, in consequence of the wise and skilful 
measures taken by Vespasian, and especially after the jak ingoC 
J erusulpm lyy Titles, in the 70th_vear of the Cfiristia n cicar""^^^'^ 

JVDAEA' CAPTA. — Un another nrst Dfass of Vespasian a 
female sits weeping beside a palm, close to which tree a man 
stands with his hands tied behind him. — Havercamp gives a 
first brass of Titus, with a slight variation in the grouping of 
the figures, and with a helmet and buckler on the ground 
before the captive. The legend of this fine medal is inscribed 
JVD. CAP. S. C. in the field. 

JVDEA DEVICTA. — This legend is read on coins of Ves- 
pasian and Titus. The type is a woman standing in a sorrow- 
ful posture under a palm tree. 

DE JVDAEIS. A Trophy. — On gold coins of Vespasian. 

A second brass, with a remarkable legend of reverse, is des- 
cribed as follows in Madden's ** Coins of the Jews ", p. 222. 

Obv. T. CAES. IMP. AVG. F. TR. P. COS. VI. CENSOR. 
Head of Titus to the right, laureated. 

I^. JVDAEA NAVALIS. Palm-tree ; on the left side arms ; 
on the right, Judaea seated on ground. In exergue S. C. 

This remarkable, and, according to M. Cohen, assti extraordi- 
fiaire coin, was published some years ago by M. Dumersan, of 
the *• Cabinet des M^dailles " at Paris, in the ** Numismatic 
Journal ". It was found at Pont-sur-Yonne, near Sens, in France, 
and was at that time in the possession of M. Leys, a resident of 
that town. M. Dumersan gives the following account of it : — 
** The legends /mii?a Capta and Jiidaa Devtcta are well known 
on the corns of Vespasian and Titus ; but Judaa Navalis was, 
until the discovery of this example, unknown. The Jews never 
enjoyed any great reputation as seamen; but I think, I have 
found in Josephus a narration of the event to which the legend 
and type of this coin allude, the character of which is rather 
derisive than triumphal. This author relates in his history of the 
war with the Romans (iii. 9), that when the town of Joppa 
was destroyed by Cestius, the inhabitants, driven by famine, 



sought refuge by sea, the Romans having destroyed the neigh- 
bouring towns and villages. They built vessels (oxaisTj) and 
committed piracies on the shores of Syria, Phcxjnicia and Egypt. 
The town being attacked a second time by the Roman troops, 
the Jews fled during the night towards their ships ; but a vio- 
lent tempest drove them on to the rocks which border the coast 
of Joppa, and they were exterminated. Soon after this they 
were defeated on the Lake of Gennesaret, their barks being 
unable to cope with the wariike vessels of Vespasian. To these 
events, and most probably to the first, the legend Judaa Navalis 
must allude, Titus, as is well known, having accompanied his 
father in the Judaic war ". 

FISCI. IVDAICI. CALVMNIA. SVBLATA. S. C. A Palm 
Tree. — First brass of Nerva. — The type of this historically 
interesting reverse is, as well on ancient Jewish as on Roman 
coins, symbolical of Judsea, the palm being indigenous to the 
country. 

In explanation of the unique and very remarkable legend 
attached to this reverse, the observations made by the author 
of DoctrUta are hereto subjoined as worthy of the coin's histor- 
ical interest, and of his own learned sagacity : — From the 
earliest period of the Jewish Commonwealth, the Jews were 
enjoinecl to pay the half of a siclus^ or two drachmae, for the 
service of the altar, as may be seen from the Book of Exodus 
(ch. XXX, 12, 1 3). This money, in after times, went towards the 
expenses of the Temple, being collected, not only from the 
inhabitants of Judaea, but from all Jews, in whatever part of the 
world residing : and this private system of taxation was some- 
times prohibited by the Romans, of which I have given in- 
stances, under the coins of Vespasian, and sometimes sanctioned 
by an edict, an example of which, issued in the name of Augus- 
tus, has been given by Philo Judaeus {de Legal, ad Caium, p. 502) ; 
and several by Josephus {Antiq. xvi c. 6.) The same Philo 
frequently throughout his treatise calls this money anapxai, first- 
fruits (or offerings) ; and, consequently, it was of the same 
nature as those gifts, which colonies were formerly in the habit 
of presenting every year to their mother-countries, to support 
the worship of the national deities; just as Polybius has applied 
the term aTiapy.ai to the contribution which the Carthaginians 
used to send to their mother-country Tyre. Now it is certain, 
that the Holy City was regarded by the Jews of every clime, 
as their mother-country. But the half-siclus alluded to above 
was the well-known didrachm, which our Saviour paid for 
himself and Peter with the stater miraculously found in the 
mouth of the fish, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew 
(ch. xvii. 24.) When Jerusalem and its Temple were over- 
thrown by Vespasian in the year A. R. 823 (A. D 69), the 
Jews, wheresoever residing, were ordered to contiuue the pay- 
ment of this didrachm, not, howerer, to be applied to their 
own religious uses, but to the worship of Jupiter CapitoHnus, 
as is expressly stated by Josephus (de Bell. Jud. vii. c. 6, § 6) 
and Dio. (lxvi. § 7.) — Suttonius relates {Dotnit. c. 12) that 
Domitian ** rigorously exacted the Jewish tax, under which 
were charged all, who either clandestinely lived after the Jewish 
fashion within the walls of Rome, or who, concealing their 
origin, had evaded the payment of the tribute imposed upon 
their nation '*. — Spanheim, who has proved his learning and 
eloquence in his explanation of this coin (vol. II p. 500), argues 
from the terms of the legend itself, that h was not intended to 
convey the notion, that the Jewish tax or didrachm, as many 
have supposed, was abolished by Nerva, but simply that the 
calumnia (system of false acatsation) was done away (subla ta) ; 
that is to say, exemption from the tax in question was thence- 
forth secured to all who did not admit themselves to be Jews 
and their names no longer entered on the fiscal lists as belonging 
to that nation. For the iniquitous inquisitorial system pursued 
by Domitian towards those who were suspected of Judaism, is 
cfrcumstaniially recorded by Suetonius in the passage above 
referred to. 

In confirmation of this mode of interpreting the legend in 
question, Eckhel adduces an admirable example : — According 
to Eusebius (in vita Const. II. c. 45). Constantine the Great, 
with a view to repress the excesses of idolatry, drew up two 
laws, one of which was called ** a law to suppress the abomin- 
ations so long perpetrated by idolatry throughout the cities 
and districts . Not a few individuals have taken these words 
to mean that Constantine wished, by this law, to put a stop to 
all the rites of Paganism ; a notion entirely at variance with 
history. — Eusebius merely sav's that such abominations (xx 
fxuaapa) were forbidden by the Emperor, as the ancient super- 
stition cherished, especially beyond the walls of the city» That 
the Jews were not afterwards exempt from the payment of the 
didrachm, is shewn from an epistle of Origen to Africanus. in 
wh^ch the expression occurs : — ** Since even at the present 
time the Jews still pay the didrachm to the Romans. " It is 
sufficiently evident that the affair of the Jews had become one 
of considerable moment (rem Judaic um magni fuisse momciiti) 
even within the walls of Rome ; and that the people generally 
suffered so much indiscriminate severity, on account of suspect- 
ed Judaism, that, when at last the evil was removed, the 
Sena,e considered the event of sufl[icient importance to be per- 
petuated on coins. "

A LA MONNAIE GRECQUE D*HTLLARIMA 

Poime en deux chants, 

I 

Cest en vain que sur toi les sitcles ont pass6, 

Que les temps incUments, fer tiles en temp^tes, 

Ont fauch^ sans merci les villes et les tetes, 

O bronze ! ton 6clat ne s'est pas effaci! 

Lascience, pour toi, livrant maintes batailles 

Pour te reconquirir, 6 modeste tr^sor ! 

Jusqu'au jour oil tu pris comme un nouvel essor, 

A fouill^ cette terre aux fecondes entrailles. 

Salut! humble monnaie, enfant d'Hyllarima, 

Je vois revivre en toi la ciii disparue, 

Ses poetes, ses rois, et la foule accourue 

Aux temples de ses dieux, que le temps dicima ; 

Je tevois reluisant aux mains d'une payenne 

Obole de Tamour, gage de la beaut^, 

Alors que Ton pouvait aimer en liberty, 

Au gvi de ses d&irs : fiUe ou patricienne ! 

Pour toi, que ne fit-on au temps de ta splendeur, 

O petite monnaie ! aujourd'hui sans usage, 

Entre les mains d*un fou, dans la bourse d'un sage, 

Tu passas tour k tour, arbitre de bonheur. 

Peut-6tre aussi, parfois, en des heures d'alarmes, 

Au guerrier malheureux n*as-tu pas apporti 

L'espoir de la revanche avec la lioert^, 

Et n a-t-on pas, souvent, pour toi vers6 des larmes ! 

Oh ! terrible mital, plus cruel que I'acier 

Pour lequel on fit tout, dfes Taurore du monde, 

Tant6t tribut divin, tant6t salaire immonde, 

Toi qui de nos destins est le puissant levier, 

O pricieux debris de cet antique empire 

Ou fut Hyllarima ! toi que j'ai ramassi, 

Au coeur mfime du sol par nos pics ddfonci 

Pais done jaillir encore et larmes et sourires! 

II 

Je fus longtemps s^duit par de fausses images, 

Mais tu fus mon itoile, et, comme les rois mages, 

Je t'ai vue, 6 monnaie! et suivant ta clart^, 

J'ai trouv^ le chemin cher i la v^riti ! 

Par ta science enfin, qui m'instruisit, jegage, 

J'ai formi mon esprit et chang^ mon langage. 

Fille d'Hyllarima, tu sais entretenir 

En mon docile coeur, plus d'un doux souvenir. 

Ce coeur reconnaissant se figure, i toute heure. 

Voir les sites charmants qui furent ta demeure. 

Entendre les hauts faits dont tu fus le timoin, 

Sans cesse m'invitant Ji les suivre de loin. 

Helas ! seul maintenant ouand le chagrin m'accable, 

Dans r^ternel chaos, innme grain de sable, 

Je ne veux pas grossir la source de mes pleurs; 

Je t'aime et tu sauras apaiser mes douleurs. 

Pour te chanter ici, quand ma Muse se joue, 

Cest en des vers 6mus, car je sens sur ma joue 

Une larme couler; mon coeur en est rempli! 

Non, tu ne mourras pas comme moi dans Toubli, 

Tu te riras du temps, j'en garde I'assurance, 

O petite monnaie! et c'est mon esp^rance 

De braver du destin le caprice inconstant, 

Vivant pour te chirir, pauvre et toujours content. 

Apollon, quelquefois , m'iclairantde sa flamme, 

Viendra dieter un chant hiroi'que en mon ime; 

Les Muses m'offriront leurs charmes innocents, 

Et, joveux, d leurs pieds, je brfllerai I'encens. 

Que de moments heureux se passeront i lire 

Ou bien i r^p^ter sur la vibrante lyre 

Des vieux pokes grecs les sublimes Merits; 

De leur oeuvre g^ant je suis toujours 6pris, 

Et quand viendra I'instant ou la Parque ennemie 

Coupera de mes jours le fil dilicieux. 



Sans accuser la mort, sans regretterla vie. 
Pour r^ternel sommeil, je fermerai mes veux. 
Malgr61esans cruels, je suis rest6 timide, 
Precieuse monnaie! et je te prends pour guide : 
Garde-'moi du mensonge et de ses fictions, 
Jette encore en mon coeur les m^les passions, 
Conserve-lui le gout de la beaut^ sereine, 
Fille d'Hyllarima, sois i jamais mareine! 

Alexandre-Pierre Boutkowski-Glinka.

en deux lignes : 10 I YA | 10 I TT | ., et ^ I'exergue : OAGITflN. 
Br. 3 |. — htedite. — [Les trois enseignes militaires font sans doute 
allusion au regiment romain qui stationnait, i cette ^poque, 4 
Juliopolis]. On ne connait pas de monnaies de Juliopolis de ce 
module. 

Juliopolis est Tancien Gordium, ville du pays proprement dit la 
Galatie, mais gin^ralement incorpor^e (on ne sait trop pourquoi) 
dans les regions g^ographiques de la Bithynie. Voy. sur les monnaies 
de cette ville : a). Khone^ M6m. de la Soc. arch, de Saint-Pitersbourg, 
1850, p. 185; b). Id, Auct. : Berliner Blatter fiir Mlinz-Siegel u.

CYPIAC.TTAAAICT. Simulacre de CybHe, qui tient, de la main dr. 
levie, un oiseau, et, de la gauche, un objet indistinct; dessous, des 
deux c6t6s, deux bisons, qui font, sans doute, allusion i la tradition 
suivant laquelle Cybele avait 6t&, dfes sa naissance, exposie sur une 
montagne dont elle prit le nom et oil elle fut nourrie par les bfetes 
des forets. Au milieu du champ, la date : GT-H. (an 90 de T^re 
syrienne). — Br. 7 1. Inidite et inconnue h Mionnet. 

EpiphaniUy ville de la Syrie (dans la province Apamtne), situ^e 
sur les c6tes orientales de I'Oronte, fut conquise par les Romains, 
Tan de R. 690. Elle florissait encore au moyen dee, cf. Ahulfeda-Syr.y 
et s'appelle aujourd'hui Hamath, dans le paschalyk de Damask. Elle 
a it^ le lieu de naissance du c^l^bre g^ographe arabe Abulfeda, 
f Tan 1332. La sirie des monnaies d'Epiphania, qui datent depuis 
Tib^re jusqu'4 Gordien, est fort incomplete partout, vu la raret^ des 
pieces qui doivent la former. Celle que nous venons de d&rire est 
complfetement inconnue. 

ToMi (Moesie Inf^rieure). 

3. Caligula. Droit : KAICAP-TAIOC- Tete laurte de Caligula, i 
dr. ]^. : TOM.HrHTOPO[C]. Caduc^e pos^ perpendiculairement et 
occupant tout le champ de la monnaie. Br. 2|. — Inidite. — Ma 
collection. 

Cette monnaie nous prouve que Tomi, du temps de Caligula, 
exer^a diji une certaine preponderance sur les villes voisines, mais 
sans avoir un caractfere politiaue. Le caduc^e, emblfeme ordinaire 
de Hermes, fait ^videmment allusion au commerce. Son ^tat floris- 
sant, Tomi le devait 4 la vente des bl^s, qui, dans la Moesie, connue 
pour etre fertile (cfr. Solinus, XXI : « Moesias majores nostri jure 
« Cereris horreum nominabant. »), n'exigeait pas de grandes d^penses. 

4. Antonin lePieux. Droit : KAICAP-ANTflNGINOC TSte laurie 
d'Antonin le Pieux, i droite. j^. : TOMLXAIPOIGNflN. en trois 
lignes. Nike ailee, tourn^e i gauche, tient de la main droite levie 
une couronne et pose un pied sur une t^te humaine i longs cheveux. 
Br. 4. — Inidite. — Musie d'Odessa et ma collection. 

Tomi n'apparait pas ici comme ville uniquement commer^ante. 
Les richesses acquises par le trafic lui donnferent les moyens de se 
d^fendre vaillamment contre ses impitueux voisins, et la d^esse 
de la Victoire (Niki), qui figure au Revers de cette monnaie, fait 
entrevoir I'heureuse soumission de barbares ennemis. A partir de 
cette 6poque, Tomi, n'^tant plus exposie i des dangers ext^rieurs.

pouvait, k juste litre, s'intitukr « hospitaliire » et promettre i ses 
nouveaux colons Strangers la plus complete tranauilliti et s6curit6. 
Un pareil accroissement de sa puissance, sous les Antonins, nous est 
d^montri encore par cette circonstance que sous leur rfegne Tomi 
commence i prendre le titre de MHTPOOOAIC (conip. les mon. 
dans Mion.y Suppl., 1. 11, p. 185, n°74i seq.) et, depuis Commode, 
MHTPOnOAIC.nONTOY., surnom qu'elle conserva sur ses mon- 
naies jusqu'au temps des Philippes. Sous ces empereurs, toutes les 
autres villes environnantes perdirent leur droit de frapper monnaie 
et Tomi fut privi de son indipendance qui n'avait pas M encore 
entiirement a^truite par les Romains. Les pillages et les invasions 
des Goths ditruisirent d'un seul coup toute vie dans les colonies 
grecques. Si quelques noms de ces colonies se rencontrent encore 
plus tard (cfr. : Procop., de Aedific.,IV, 11, p. 307, 308 (de Tid. de 
Bonn); Constantin Porphyrogenite, III, p. 47 (de Vtd. de Bonn); 
Hieroclis Synecdemus^ ibid., p. 391), cela nous dimontre seulement 
qu'aprts la perte de leurs privileges, elles ne p^rirent pas entiferement 
et traintrent pendant quelques sifecles une existence pr^caire et tour- 
ment^e. Pendant tout le courant du moyen age, les anciens noms 
des villes deviennent de plus en plus rares et finissent par disparaitre 
entiferement de Thistoire.

Rectification importante concernant le veritable emplacement de Tomi. 

C'est une grande erreur de chercher les mines et Templacement 
de Tomi i Tendroit qui porte aujourd'hui le nom de Je^ni Pangola 
ou i Tomisvafy car Templacement actuel de KHstendjiy plus que tous 
les autres endroits de la contrie, pr<isente une conformity frappante 
avec les courts indices que nous a laiss& Ovide du lieu de son exil et 

3ue nous donnons ici comme preuves de ce que nous venons de 
ire pour determiner la vraie situation topographique de Tancienne 
citi de Tomi. Une rive rocailleuse, dont nous parle (dans ses : 
Trist.y I, 8. 9) I'immortel pofete, caractirise encore aujourd'hui 
Tendroit ou se trouve Kiistendji et forme, en s'avan^ant dans la 
mer, pr6s la c6te orientale de la presqu'ile, plusieurs rochers. En 
plus, Ovide (Trist., V, 10. 18) indique une chaine de montagnes du 
Dud, qui couvre i TEst une partie de la presqu'ile, et dit que la seule 
position naturelle de ce pays et les murailles de la ville la pr&ervent 
du danger d'etre continuellement attaqu^e par des voisins ennemis, 
les Scythes. — Dans le lac, qui gile en hiver et duquel on casse la 
glace {Ovid.y Trist., Ill, 10. 26 ; ibid., Ill, 12. 28), nous reconnais- 
sons le lac situi i 2 5 kilometres de Kiistendjiy qu'on appelle encore 
aujourd'hui le lac d'Ovide (Ovidiovo oz^ro). — Le d^taut de gras 
paturages {Trist. ^ HI, 10. 75, v. 4. 10; Epist.y I, 2. 25), d'ombra- 
geuses forits de saules {Trist. ^ V, 4. 9; III, 10. 75; HI, 12. 16) 
et de chines {Epist., I, 3. 52; III, i. 20), de sources d'eau douce 
{Epist.yllly I. 17), d'oiseaux chantants {Epist., Ill, i. 21), I'absence 
complete de champs fertiles {Epist.y I, 3. 55), nous rappelle bien 
clairefnent le desert dans lequel se trouve aujourd'hui Kiistendji y et 
ce tableau sera encore plus vraisemblable, si nous joignons i cela les 
plaintes d'Ovide sur Tuniformite de la contr^e, laquelle comme une 
mer nous offre uneplaine infinie {Trist. y III, i. 20) qui ne se couvre 
}amais au printemps de verdure multicolore {Trist. y III, i. 11), et, 
au lieu de differentes herbes verdoyantes, n'abonde seulement qu'en 
la plante d'absinthe amtre (absinthium), cfr. Epist.y HI, i. 23; 
in, 8. 15, — plante qui n'est propre qu'au desert ou i une steppe. 
Ajoutons encore i cela la remaraue d'Ovide qu'i Tomi on ne ren- 
cohtre que des oiseaux de mer (Epist.y I, 21. 22) qui remplissent 
I'air de leurs cris sauvages, que Teau potable est salee et exhale une 
odeur mar^cageuse {Epist.y II, 7. 74), et que la force des aquilons

LA NUMISMATIQUE EN VENDfE 

— On nous avait dit, bien k tort, que, depuis la disparition de 
Benjamin Fillon et de Poey d'Avanty les deux ceiebres numismates de 
Fontenay, dont les savants ouvrages sont cites continuellement 
dans les catalogues, il n'y en avait plus en Vendee. II y a li, au 
coniraire, des archtologues, des artistes et des hommes d'une ins- 
truction superieure, dont I'esprit est souvent porte vers les antiqui- 
tes et les medailles, ces temoinsindeniables de ^histoire^ On nous a 
mSme signaie plusieurs amateurs modestts, i la Roche-sur-Yon, k 
Fontenay, i la Chitaigneraie, qui recherchent avec passion les ancien- 
nes monnaies, et s'empressent surtout d'acquerir celles qui sont trou- 
vees dans le departement de la Vendee ou aux environs. lis ont, 
dans leurs collections, des monnaies gauloises, des consulaires et 
des imperiales romaines, des pieces d'or de Philippe VI, Jean II, 
Charles V et VI, rois de France; d'Edouard III, d'Angleterre, et du 
Prince Noir, comme dues d'Aquitaine; de Louis XI et XII, Fran- 
cois I", Charles IX, etc. ; des gros ou testons de presque tous uos 
anciens Rois; des monnaies du siede actuel, et enfin une serie de 
Feodales. — Voili qui est interessant et suggestif! Du reste, tous 
les lecteurs des Revues locales savent que ce pays recele des tresors 
d'archeologie ; — les anciennes monnaies sont doublement precieu- 
ses, et nous constatons avec plaisir aujourd'hui que les amateurs n'y 
manquent pas pour les recueillir et les conserver. Nous recherche- 
rons Dient6t quelles sont les autres collections que le Poitou pourrait 
mettre en ligne pour remplacer celles des deux grands numismates 
de Fontenay-le-Comte, dont nous rappellerons seulement ici les 
principaux ecrits : — Benjamin Fillony qui etait un erudit de grande 
valeur, a public : Considerations historiques et artistiques sur les mon- 
naies de France, 1850, in-8°; Lettresa M. Dugast-Matifeux sur quel- 
ques monnaies frangaises inediteSy 1853, in-8°; Etudes numismatiqueSy 
1856, in-8°; Poitou et Vendee, 1862-87, 2 vol, in-4°, en collabora- 
tion avec M. Octave de Rochebrune, I'eminentaqua-fortiste vendeen. 
— Faustin Poey-d'kvant est I'auteur des Monnaies feodales de France, 
1858-62, 3 vol. in 4°, veritable corpus de la numismatique feodale, 
qui decrit pres de 7.000 pieces. — Cet ouvrage a ete continue avec 
une grande competence (1882-1884), par M. E. Caron, President 
de la Societe fran^aise de Numismatique, dans 3 fascicules in-4°, 
formant un volume de 400 pages, avec 27 planches. — M. Caron 
s'interesse beaucoup i la numismatique feodaUy dont I'etude lui 
parait preferable i celle de la numismatique ancienne : « Les collec- 
« tions locales des monnaies feodales, dit-il, offrent sous une forme 
« tangible et appreciable I'histoire d'une province, et les prix de 
« ces monnaies sont loin d'atteindre les prix fastueux des collections 
« des monnaies antiques, qui souvent ne charment que I'oeil, sans 
« interesser I'esprit, ou ne I'iiiteressent qu'i des faits eioignes ou 
« inconnus. » C'est peut-etre vrai, et c'est tres patriotique, mais 
discutable au point de vue archeologique aussi bien qu'artistique, et 
nous voyons beaucoup plus d'amateurs de monnaies antiques que de 
monnaies feodales. Les savants travaux de M. Ernest Babelon, sur 
les numismariques grecque et romaine les ont edairees d'un jour 
tout nouveau et leur ont donne une importance historique conside- 
rable. 

LE TIERS DE SOU DE MtASTVMACO 

Le Bulletin de NumismatiquCy publie i Paris par M. Serrure, a 
recemment appeie notre attention sur un tiers de sou ou triens mero- 
vingien, trouve dans la terre, pres de la Roche-sur-Yon, et que 
M. Bitton, de cette ville, avait deji signaie dans la Revue Poitevine 

I. Dte le xvrie si^Ie, le docteur Charles Patin (1633-1693) mettait la numis- 
matioue au dessus detoutes les autres connaissances. Sans elle, dii-il, I'histoire, 
que Cic^ron appelle la niessag^re de Tantiquit^, serait denude de preuves; en 
offrant les monuments les plus solides et les plus faciles d conserver et k trans- 
mettre, elle donne aux faits une certitude irrecusable. L'^tude des medailles, 
tout en servant de recreation, contribue done i orner Tcsprit, a T^tendre, a 
1 dever. Ce sont les medailles quinous devoilent les fonctions mysierieuses de 
la religion des anciens, et les instruments dont on se servait pour les executer ; 
qui nous font connaiire les divinites qui etaient adorees, les maraues et les noms 
des magistratures ; quinous representent' les temples, les ports, les marches, les

lisques, les colysees ; qui offrent 4 nos yeux la pompe des triomphes, Texercice 
des jeux, les privileges des cites, Tetablissement des colonies, la conqu^te des

paraissant fetre ASNIACO, le nom d'Asniacum fiit identifii avec 
Aizenay (Vendue). Mais, en examinant de oris cette petite monnaie 
d'or, on voit que Tinscription doit fitre lue BASNIACO et non 
ASNIACO, le B initial, plac6 i gauche prfes du buste, ayant it6 pris 
d'abord pour un ornement de ce buste. L'existence de cette lettre 
ne pouvant faire aucun doute, d'aprfes le dessin ci-dessous, il reste 




i rechercher ouelk est la locality actuelle qui aurait hi autrefois 
Basniacum} C est une question difficile i r^soudre. Plusieurs numis- 
mates ont pense que cette pitce pourrait provenir de Besni (Loire- 
Infirieure), bourg situ^ au bord de la Grande-Bri6re, entre Donges 
et Pont-Chiteau, arrondissement de Saint-Nazaire. Ce lieu est en 
effet, ixhs ancien, il existait au 6* siecle, et Gregoire de Tours y fait 
naitre Saint Friard; on y a mime trouv^ un tombeau m^rovingien, 
qu'on donne pour celui de ce saint. Cette identification gtogra- 
phique paraitrait done assez s^rieuse. D'un autre c6te, M. Prou 
nous a fait remarquer que le triens de Basniaco est dans le style d'un 
certain nombre de ceux de la Touraine : les cheveux hirissis, la 
forme triangulaire du buste, et surtout le cercle qui entoure la 
nuque, sont des caractiristiques; mais nous n'avonspas trouv6 jus- 
qu'i present en Touraine, au sud de la Loire, une localiti dont le 
nom corresponde i celui de Basniaco. On trouve i 8 kilometres de 
Sancerre (Cher), sur le canal lateral i la Loire, une commune appe- 
16e Bannay, mais ce lieu est un peu iloigni, et nous pr^fererions 
encore BesnCy plus rapproch^ du Poitou. Les styles ne s'arrfitent pas 
aux limites des provinces, et, spicialement en ce aui concerne la 
Touraine, le style est le mfeme pour les triens des villages situ& sur 
les confins du Poitou. II est possible igalement, comme I'^crivait 
Lelewel k Benjamin Fillon, que les mon^taires en se d^pla^ant, 
aient reproduit sur d'autres points de la Gaule, les nianiircs de leurs 
localit^s; mais en g^niral, les locality et les provinces se distin- 
guent par des types sp^ciaux, par des fagons qui leur sont propres. 
Cest ainsi que des caracttres particuliers signalent les monnaies 
d'Austrasie (tant des Pays-Bas que de Lorraine), et celles deCahors, 
d'Auvergne, de Marseille, etc. — En r6sum^, nous pensons qu'il 
est preferable de ne pas chercher i identifier Basniaco avant d'avoir 
trouv^ un autre triens du mSme atelier et d'un style plus caract^rist.

NURNBER6ER REGHEN-UND SPIELPFENNI6E 

Es gibt im Sammelwesen Gebiete, welche, in oft hochst unge- 
rechtfertigter Weise, ganz oder theilweise vernachlassigt werden. 
Hieher gehort im weiten Felde der Numismatik das Sammeln und 
das Studium der Jetons, Rechenpfennige und Spielmarken. Aller- 
dings hat auch hierin die neueste Zeit eine Besserung erzielt, denn 
besonders franzosische und belgische Forscher haben sich neuer- 
dings in ernsterer Weise und mit Gliick auch auf das Studium der 
Jetons geworfen. Aber gerade das Feld der in obigem Titel 
genannten Producte hat noch wenig Berucksichtigung gefunden, 
irotzdem es gewiss nach den verschiedensten Seiten Interesse und 
Werth hat, eine private Miiniindustrie :^u verfolgen^ welche Jahrhun- 
derte lang gedauert haty noch heute florirt und welche fur ihre Producte 
weit fiber die Gren^en des Er^eugungslandes hinaus bekannt war und 
Absatz, /and. 

Die yyRechenpfennige^^ oder, in ihrer franzosischen Benennung, die 
yJetons*\ waren, wie diese Namen besagen, urspriinglich zum 
Rechnen bestimmt; sie soUten das Rechnen erleichtern und 
entsprangen dem Bedurfnisse nach einem greifbaren Rechnungs- 
objecte, ahnlich, wie sich kleine und grosse Leute noch heut' zu 
Tage der Finger beim Rechnen bedienen oder wie in den Schulen 
an Rechentafeln mit greif- und verstellbaren Kugeln das Rechnen 
gelehrt wird ; ob Rechenpfennig, Rechenkugel, Finger oder drgl. m. 
— airdem liegt die Idee zu Grunde, Zahlenbegriffe verkorpers vor 



sich sehen und die arithmetischen Operationen desto leichter 
fasslich machen zu konnen. Diese Rechenmethode , woriiber Dr. 
A. Nagel in der Wiener numismatischen Zeitschrift 1887 « die 
Rechenpfennige und die operative Arithmetik » ausfuhrlicher 
berichtet hat, war schon im Alterthume bekannt und geiibt. 
Ebenso treffen wir sie im Mittelalter wieder, wo sie sich auf Grund 
von Urkunden und Rechenpfennigen bis ins XIIL Jahrhundert 
zuriickverfolgen lasst. Im XV. und XVI. Jahrh. wird dieselbe 
Methode auch in Buchern beschrieben und wir mochten hier 
darauf hinwcisen, dass in dem 14^6 erschienenen Buche « Marga- 
rita philosophica » auf dem Titelblatte neben dem mit sogen. ara- 
bischen Ziftern rechnenden Boetius der mit Rechensteinen operi- 
rende Pythagoras dargestellt erscheint. Letzterer sitzt in mittel- 
alterlicher Tracht hinter einem gothischen Tische und hat aut 
dessen mit Linieneintheilung versehener Platte eine Menge theils 
auf einem Haufen liegender, theils auf die verschiedenen Linien 
vertheilter Rechensteine liegen. Der Gebrauch dieser Rechenme- 
thode hat sich aber auch weiter bis in die letzten Jahrhunderte 
hinein noch erhalten, doch mag er manchen Orts fruher, ander- 
warts spater zu Grabe getragen worden sein — Thatsache ist, dass 
diese Art des Rechnens heute schon ganzlich verschollen war und 
es gebuhrt Dr. Nagel das Verdienst, diese Methode wiedergefunden 
und der Vergessenheit entrissen zu haben. 

Der Grund , wieso diese Rechenweise mit Rechenpfennigen nach 
mehrhundertjahrigem Bestehen so leicht und rasch vergessen 
werden konnte, mag wohl vor Allem darin liegen, dass dieselbe 
keinen unmittelbaren Abschluss fand, sondern ganz allmahlig, 
kaum merkbar, sich m einem andern Gebrauche verlor, in einer 
andern Erscheinung aufging : Der Rechenpjennig wurde ^um Spiel- 
pfennig , in welch' letzterer Eigenschaft er sich bis heute erhalten 
nat. Wann dieser Umschwun^ sich voUzogen , ist noch nicht mit 
Sicherheit festgesiellt ; ob er sich zur Zeit der franzosischen Revo- 
lution, also etwa in der Wende vom XVIII. ins XIX. Jahrhundert 
vollzogen , ob er in die lebenslustige Zeit der Mitte des letzten 
Jahrh. tallt, oder ob schon fruher der Rechenpfennig beim Spiele 
als solcher diente, sind schwer zu entscheidende Fragen. Dr. Nagel 
denkt sich den Ursprung der Spielmarke derart, dass man nach dem 
Verschwinden der Linienarithmetik die im Hausrathe aller Aemter 
und vieler Privathauser vorhandenen Rechenpfennige, da man 
etwas anderes mit ihnen nicht anzufangen wusste, zum Spielen 
verwendete; fiir Nagel fallt dieser Wendepunkt in die zweite Halfie 
des letzten Jahrhunderts, doch ist auch ihm weder die Zeit noch die 
Art des Ueberganges vom Rechenpfennig in den Spielpfennig klar. 
Weit plausibler erscheint es uns, dass bereits in sehr frtiher Zeit diese 
Rechenpfennige beim Spiele die Stelle des Geldes vertraten — war 
doch das « um-Geld-spielen » von jeher und zu alien Zeiten verpont ; 
gespielt tnusstt aber sein und so wanlte man klugerweise einen Mittel- 
weg : ein Mittelweg in Form des Rechenpfennigs, des Jetons oder 
der Spielmarke, wie man die neugeschaffene MOnze nun zu nennen 
beliebte. Gerade well diese Rechen- bezw. Spielpfennige die Stelle 
des Geldes vertraten, bildete man sie in ihrem Geprage auch haufig 
den wirklichen damals cursirenden Geldmunzen, ja auch wohl 
Medaillen nach. Dieser Prozess voUzieht sich noch heute unter 
unsern Augen (man vgl. z. B. die modernen Lauer'schen Spiel- 
marken mit den gegenwartig cursirenden Miinzen und mit manchen 
in den letzten Janren ausgegebenen Medaillen!) und genau dasselbe 
lasst sich auch an Jahrhundertealten Rechenpfennigen beobachten. 
^- Nur zu leicht ist man beim Theoretisiren versucht, Alles unter 
ein Schema zu bringen ; im vorliegenden Falle liegt die Versuchung 
nahe, einerseits alle derartigen Munzen unter das Schema der 
Rechenpfennige als Mittel fbm practischen Rechnen zu bringen, 
andrerseits alle dieselben als wirkliche Spielpfennige zu bezeichnen. 
Einem Jeden das seine : den Rechenpfennigen als Rechenmittel 
muss ohne Zweifel eine sehr grosse Zahl alterer und ganz alter 
Stiicke zugewiesen werden, den Spielpfennigen gehoren ganz 
gewiss auch nicht wenige alte Pifecen an und es zanlen in erster 
Linie hieher die der altberuhmten Spielwaarenstadt Nurnberg 
entstammenden. Ausserdem aber sind gewiss sehr viele der heute 
als Jetons bezeichneten und geltenden Munzen als billige, von 
Privatanstalten ausgegebene Denkmiinzen aufzufassen, analog den 
Zinn- und Messingdenkmiinzen, wie sie noch heule von Graveuren 
und Prageanstalten massenhaft auf jede Gelegenheit gepragt und in 
den Handel geworfen werden. Die Unterscheidung zwischen

Rechenpfennig , Sp\elniarke und Denkmiinze ist also eine sehr 
schwierige, ja oft wird es ganz unmoglich sein, die Grenze zu 
Ziehen, da Denkmunzen sowohl als Rechenpfennige zu Spielmarken 
Verwendung fonden, Spielmarken aber wie Denkmunzen ebenso als 
Rechenmiitel verwendet werden konnten und wiederum Rechen- 
pfennige wie Spielmarken mit Bildern versehen wurden, welche sie 
nebenbei auch zu Denkmunzen stempelten. 

Die Grenzen fiir unser Gebiet sind also schwankende — desto 
besser fiir die Sammler, die sie sich nach Belieben enger ziehen 
oder weiter stecken konnen. Um aber deni Leser einen Begriff von 
einer solchen Sammlung zu geben, sei hier unsere kleine aber 
instructive Rechen- resp. Spielpfennig-Collection einer kurzen 
Besprechung unterzogen. 

Der Gebrauch der Rechenpfennige scheint sich zuerst in Frank- 
reich eingebiirgert zu haben, denn dort begegnet man demselben 
urkundlich schon im XIII. Jahrhundert und aus dem XIV. sasc. 
sind bereits zahlreiche Originale bekannt, wahrend zugleich ihrer 
in Urkunden schon haufig Erwahnung geschieht. Spater kopirte 
man die franzosischen Originale auch anderwarts , in Deutschland, 
Holland, etc. und es ist derart erklarlich, wieso die Lilien und die 
Lilienkrone, der Lilienstab, etc. sich auch auf nicht-franzosischen 
Jetons wiederfinden. Ebenso wie die Bilder copirte man auch die 
franzosischen Inschriften ; da diese aber dem copisten nicht immer 
verstandlich und ausserdem schwer leserlich waren, wurden sie bald 
entstellt wiedergegeben und es geben fast alle diese nichtfranzo- 
sischen Pi^cen blosse, oft ganz sinnlose Buchstabencombinationen; 
oft sind an Stelle dieser ein paar lateinische Brocken gesetzt und 
diese rings um den Rand mehrmals wiederholt. Aut den fran- 
zosischen Jetons, die sich beilaufig durch edleres Geprage und 
grosseres Gewicht auszeichnen, steht gewohnlich die in gothischen 
Lettern um den Rand laufende Inschrift : 

GETOIR : DE : LA : CHAMBRE 



DES ;. COMPTES : LE ROI f 
d. h. <c Getoir (Jeton) de la chambre des comptes, le roi. » Als 
Munzbild erscheint der Vierpass mit Schild odcr Reichsapfel, auf 
dem Revers Lilien. Ein anderes Stuck zeigt nun Dreipass einerseits 
tind Lilien nebst Kronen anderseits, als Umschrift aber ; 
q^? DE BON : DE BOM IS DE BENI 
t DE BOI t DE BON f DE BON 
Ohne Zweifel ist das hier sich sinnlos wiederholende « De Bon » 
eine missverstandeneLesung des « Geton ))-Jeton. Noch arger wird 
die Sinnlosigkeit bei einem weitern Exemplare, wo dasselbe 
Munzbild wiederkehrt, dagegen zu lesen ist : 

BVN BVN M B N B N B u. s. w. 
Auf einem andem : 

TVT B TVT B TVTVT b TVT 

X AE X EAS + EAS + EAS. 
Haufig kommt das Monogramm « IHS » als Munzbild vor u. 
wurde statt anderer Lettern- combinationen die Inschrift ange- 
bracht : 

SANTE GIESVS GIESVS 

JESV . MAG BAPIE 

und auch anderwarts kehrtdas Wort «Jesus», ebenso haufig <cAve», 

in stereotyper Weise wieder. Auf einem Pfennig (Reichsapfel im 

Dreipass, Kronen, etc.) erscheint neben der sinnlosen Umschrift : 

ATVS + ATVS + ATVS 
auch der Name des Verfertigers 

* JORG IPISCHOR GVRTI. PRO AVE 

wie aus dem Namen zu ersehen, also ein Deutscher und wohl 
Niirnberger — denn es kann kaum einem Zweifel unterliegen, dass 
die Mehrzahl dieser leichten Jetons in Niirnberg entstanden ist. 

Im XVI. Jahrh. sehen wir an die Stelle der gothischen Lettern 
die romischen treten, das Geprage verbessert sich zusehends und es 
erscheinen nun auch in Deutschland (Niirnberg) wirklich schone 
Stucke. Eines der bekanntesten, recht haufig vorkommenden 
Geprage ist das des sogenannten « Rechenmeisterpfennigs » : Ein 
Mann sitzt hinter einem Tische und hat Geld vor sich liegen ; auf 
der Riickseite das Alphabet. Von diesem Geprage existiren zahlreiche 
Varianten , von der schonsten fein gearbeiteten Zeichnung bis zur 
rohen, plumpen und unverstandenen Reproduction. Ein Stuck tragt 
die Inschr. « RECHENMEISTER » und zeigt diesen im Gelde 
wuhlend; beiderseits auf dem Tische 2 gothische Schatullen. Bei 



einem anderen Exemplar fehlt die Inschrift, das Alphabet ist in ein 
Quadrat eingeschlossen und der Rechenmeister hat links auf dem 
Tische Geld, rechts die Rechentafel liegen. Wieder ein anderer 
Pfennig dieser Sorte zeigt auf dem Tische des Rechners links ein 
aufgeschlagenes Buch und rechts ein Tintenfass, in der Mitte Geld- 
stiicke. Ein Copist hat diese Form babarisirt und ein weiteres, 
roheres Geprage geschaffen , das sich durch die darauf befindliche 
Jahreszahl //j^ und die Buchstaben R ^ (auf der Tischplatte) 
ausgezeichnet. — Neben dieser Sorte figuriren im XVI. Jahrh. die 
Rechenpfennige des i^Hans Schultesy) zu Niirnberg, welche sich durch 
gutes Geprage auszeichnen. — Ein prachtig gezeichneter Pfennig 
zeigt eine Ansicht Niirnbergs mit Reichs- und Stadtwappen, dariiber 
auf den Wolken thronend Gott, unten inscr. : Norenberg und oben 
« Prosperatum est opus in manibus eius », auf der Riickseite ein 
yom Winde getriebenes Schiff" auf bewegter See, nebst Inschrift : 
«De Supera auxilium.» Das Schiff, als «Gliicksschiff)), ist gerade ein 
beim Spiel haufig angewandtes Symbol und es erscheint denn auch 
noch mehrfach auf solchen Rechen- bezw. Spielpfennigen. Eines der 
schonsten Exemplare dieser Art zeigt ein Schiff mit geblahten 
Segeln auf hochgehenden Wogen, dariiber die Inschrift : X Schifx 
Hans Krauwinckel. So waren wir denn endlich bei den Krauwinckeln 
angelangt — diesen Niirnberger Rechenpfennigmachern erster Qua- 
litat, deren Producte im Handel bereits ziemUch hoch im Werthe 
stehen und immer mehr gesucht werden. Wohl ein Vorfahre des 
beriihmtern <(Hans Krauwinckel" ist iiDamianus Krawinckehy von 
dem uns ein Rechenpfennig vorliegt, dessen eine Seite noch den 
Dreipass mit Reichsapfel und der Revers die Kronen mit Lilien 
aufweist. Ein gleiches Geprage existirt von oben erw'ahntem Hans 
Schultes, ebenso aber erscheint es auch auf Pfennigen des Hans 
Krawinckcl (oder Krauwinckel). Dieser so fruchtbare Autor hat eine 
ganze Reihe solcher Geprage (m. Reichsapfel im Dreipass) heraus- 
gegeben und diese mit mehr oder weniger frommen und haufig 
unorthographischen Spriichen geziert : 

(cHEVTRODT)) . . 

(cMORGEN TpDT)) 
« Gottes Segen macht reich » 
« Gottes Gaben soil man lob{en),» 

Aber weniger durch diese Pfennige, als vielmehr durch seine 
zahlreichen schon gearbeiteten vielfigurigen andern Rechenpfennige 
ist Hans KrawinkeT so beruhmt und gesucht geworden. Auf einem 
solchen erscheint Alexander der Grosse, dariiber die Inschrift : 
((Alexander Mang (!) 1601)) (( Hans Krauwinw. Auf einem andern 
Stiicke, datirt 1601, signirt er nur H K und dies Monogramm ist 
denn auch das am haufiesten vorkommende. Unter diesem erschei- 
nen Pfennige mit Abbildungen der (( Fama » und der (( Fortuna 
variabilis » (!!), das Wappen Konstaniinopels mit Abbildung des 
tiirkischen Kaisers, Henri IV. zu Pferd nebst seinem Wappen 
(datirt 1606), dann Henri IV. und Gemahlin, auf dem Revers 
bezeichnet ((H. Krawi». Ein 161 1 datirter Jeton zeigt Ludwig XIII. 
und die Ansicht von Rheims nebst Monogramm Hi. Sehr inte- 
ressant ferner ist die Copie einer antiken romisclien Miinze , wohl 
ebenfalls von Krawinkel, auf der einerseits Portrait und Inschrift : 
(( Vespasianus rom. imp. aug. » und andrerseits : (( Judsea capta 
S. C.» (!). zu lesen ist. 

Neben Krawinkel erscheint 1587 ein Chilian Koch mit wohlausge- 
fiihrten Rechenpfennigen , dann aber gleichsam als Nachfolger der 
Dynastie Krawinkel beginnt die Aera der Stempelschneider Laufer. 
Zunachst ein aWolf Lauf (Jer)>^ mit einem Pfennige auf die Kro- 
nung des Dauphin, der als Delphin dargestellt ist, dann erscheint 
Conrad Lauffer, ebenfalls mit einer Miinze auf den Dauphin , sich 
benennend : (( Conrad Lauffer,Rechenpfennifi;macher in Niirnberg,» 
und hieran schliessen sich nun von demselben Kiinstler mehrere 
schon ausgefiihrte Pfennige mit dem Brustbilde Ludwigs Xm. und 
dessen Lilienschild. Dann folgt ein (( H. L. », wohl Hans Lauffer, 
signirter Jeton mit dem Bilde des jungen ((LVD. XIV. D. G. Fr. 
et Nav. Rex » (( Marie Therese D. G. Fr. et Nav. Reg. » — 
Ein (( Cornelius Lauffer » erscheint mit prachtigem Pfennig auf 
Louis XIV. und endlich neben den zahlreichen prachtigen 
franzosischen Pragungen aus dieser Zeit, alle mit dem Bilde 
von (( Louis le grand » tritt auch noch ein (( Lazarus Gottl, 
Lauffer » auf. Auch er huldigt dem franzosischen Sonnenkotiige 
a Ludovicus Magnus » und bringt um dessen Wappenschild die 
Umschrift : (( Lazarus Gottl. Lauffers Rechenpfennige. » Mit

Louis XIV. hat die D)^nastie der Lauffer ein Ende und nun 
bemachtigt sich eine ganze Anzahl anderer Stempelschneider der 
Rechenpfennigfabrikation. 

Ein « Johann Weidinger » bringt noch einen kleinen Pfennig auf 
« Ludovicus Magnus » (XIV), dann folgt ein « Albrecht Hoger » 
rait Jetons auf Louis XV., und ebensolche signiren andere 
Stempelschneider mit « /. G. H, » und « /. F. ^V. » — alles 
armliche stiimperhafte Producte, denen die franzosischen Jetons in 
ihrer wiirdigen Ausfiihrung in starkem Contraste gegeniiberstehen. 

Die Zeit Ludwigs XVI. zeigt noch ein Aufflackern des Wunsches 
nach bessern Jeions und liefert noch eine Reihe von ganz passablen 
Stiicken. /. C, Reich bringt Pfennige auf Louis XVI., ein eben- 
solcher ist si^nirt « B. L. S. L. » ; eincr auf « Maria Regina » 
(Marie Antoinette) tragt die Umschrift « Mag, GottL Jordan. Rech, 
Pf, ». Als Autor eines schlechten Stiickes auf Maria Theresia nennt 
sich ein « Johann Adam Vogel ». Am besten prasentiren sich aus 
dieser Zeit die Jetons von « Lauer », auch einfach « L » signirt, mit 
dem nach links gewendeten Portrait Louis XVI; es ist der Grunder 
der noch heute florirenden Spiel markenfabrik Lauer in Nurnberg. 
— Das Zeitalter der Revolution kundigt sich auch in unsern 
Spielmarken an; das Lauer'sche Portrait Louis XVI. erscheint 
abermals, aber nun mit der bezeichnenden Umschrift : « Lud. XVI. 
Rex GaUiae defunctus-Jetton » und mit dem noch deutlichern 
Revers : Eine zur Seite am Boden liegende Krone nnd die 
Umschrift : « Sol Regni abiit den 21 Januar 1793. » Ein anderer 
Pfennig, « Jetton » bezeichnet, tragt eine Ansicht von Paris, 
dariiber inscr : « Vive la ville de Paris, » darunter <c L'an 7 de la 
liberty ». 

/. C Reich y der einen i77odatirten aRechen-Pf. » mit Abbildung 
des h. Rupertus vorfuhrt, bringt in ahnlicher Weise wie Lauer das 
Bild des « Rex defunctOs)). 

Ferner aber finden auch die andern Konige und Fiirsten ihre 
Verherrlichung : Leopold II. durch F, L, S. LAUER, auch E, L. 
S. L . Georg von England durch Johann Jacob Dit^ely Wilhelm III. 
von England und dessen Gemahlin durch «L. G. L.» (Lauer) u s. w. 

Aus der Revolution geht Bonaparte hervor, erst als (cHeros Buo- 
naparte, les fruits de ses actions, 1796)), dann als «Napoleon Empe- 
reur)), «gekr6nt den 23. Novbr. 1804)) wZ^w^r Jetton)) und dieselbe 
Firma ist es auch, die uns weiter leitet. — Um diese Zeit treten 
zahlreiche Gotterportraits auf den Spielmarken auf, so (cMinerva)), 
«Mercurius)) etc.; auch die Wende des Jahrhunderts wird gefeiert, 
((Traiectum per duo specula musis sacrum,)) alle von /. E. L. S. 
Lauer. Zu erwahnen ist ferner ein sehr haufig vorkommender Pfen- 
nig mit Darstellung des Glucksschiffes und des Mottos « Plus Ultra )), 
von « Joh. Jakob Habelt )) und eine andere Pragung mit demselben 
Sujet und demselben Motto, aber mit der Firma von « L. Chr. 
Lauer )>. 

Die Zeit der Befreiungskriege sieht uns die Sieger auch in den 
Rechenpfennigen verherrlichen, so Franz I., Furst Schwarzenberg, 
Alexander von Russland, Wilhelm III. von Preussen. Dann folgen 
Kai er Nikolaus, Friedrich Wilhelm IV., erst als Kronprinz 
( « Jetton ») vcrherrlicht, dann als Konig, schliesslich als Kaiser; 
aaran reihen sich die Konigin Victoria von England, Prinz Albert, 
Fiirst Bismarck u. s. w. Wir treten damit in diezweite Halfte dieses

IRISH VOLUNTEER MEDALS 

By the kind permission of Mr. Robert Day F.S.A. we give the 
following extracts and illustrations from the ** Journal of the Cork 
Historical and Archaeological Society ", which we believe will be of 
interest to many of our readers. 

" Among the war decorations and badges that will help to 
illustrate this valuable record of the volunteers, for which we are 
so much indebted to Major Grove White, are the following few 
examples that I have from time to time acquired. 

Royal Cork Volunteers. A silver plate on copper belt badge, 
having the harp crowned within a garter, inscribed '* King and 
Constitution ", encircled by two laurel wreaths, and below the 
letters *'R.C.V." in a cipher. 

Another similar in silver, with the same **sterling" and "LH." 
stamp as on the preceding, and another oval silver badge with 
"The independent Blues" engraved upon a garter, and in the 
centre the harp crowned.

Silver engraved prize shooting medal of the Royal Cork Volun- 
teers. Obverse — ''This prize medal w^as obtained by Wm. T. 
Collins, of the Sixth Company R.C.V., Octr. 14th, 181 1". 
Reverse — ''Presented by Sergeant Austen"; and within an oak 
and laurel wreath, a target upon a mound, between two muskets in 
saltire. [This William Tottenham Collins was my father's uncle.] 

The silver medal of "The Cork Boyne", 1776. In Medallic 
Illustrations of British History, vol. i., p. 719, No. 141, this 
"extremely rare" medal is described as "a battle of the Boyne 
memorial ' . It has a bust of William HI. to the right laureate, in 
armour and mantle. Legend, "Gulielmus Tertius". Reverse — 
Within a wreath of laurel the inscription, "Manet Post Funera 
Virtus." Legend, " Cork Boyne. " It is composed of two thin 
embossed plates, united with a loop for suspension. 

In the above list there is no record of the Fermoy Cavalry, and 
the existence of this corps appears to have been unknow^n to Mac 
Nevin, who makes no reference whatever to it. A medal which, 
perhaps, is the most lasting of all memorials, has, however, in this 
case , outlived the historic memories of the regiment. It is silver- 
gilt, two inches in diameter, circular, and has engraved upon it, 
"Pro Rege, Lege, Grege, 1798". Reverse — The harp crowned, 
between two chaplets inscribed " Fermoy Cavalry ".

In the eloquent words of Sir Jonah Barrington — ^ 

** That unparalleled army — the Irish Volunteers — had now [1782] ascended to 
the zenith of their character and prosperity. It was they, in fact , that liberated 
their country from a thraldom of seven centuries — solely by their numbers, 
their attitude, and respectability, they had conquered their independence from 
a more powerful nation without disloyalty or bloodshed. They acted without 
pay, and submitted to discipline without coercion. The regular forces paid 
them military honours. The Parliament repeatedly thanked them f.\- support- 
ing a constitution upon which their establishment had undoubtedly encroached. 
They were adored by the people , dreaded by the minister, honoured by the 
king , and celebrated throughout Europe. They had raised their country from 
slaverv. They supported their monarcn against his enemies, and armed and 
disciplined they were said to exceed 1 50,000 men. "

VARIA 



ON THE STTGAS OF NORTHUMBRIA 

At the last meeting of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle 
upon Tyne, Rev. Waher Fcatherstonhaugh read an interesting 
paper on « The Stycas of Northumbria », Mr. Heslop said he thought 
many would hardly accept the suggested continuity of art from 
Roman, through Romano-British to Anglo-Saxon times. The 
Anglo invasion of Northumbria was of so ruthless a character as to 
have probably obliterated the arts of Rome. As to the composition 
of bronze or brass coins, ihey all knew that brass was an alloy com- 
posed usually of two parts of copper and one part of zinc. But the 
discovery of zinc as an independent metal was of comparatively 
recent date. Brass, therefore, in early times, was obtained by fusing 
mixtures of ores together, and the metallic product which resulted 
was brass or bronze, according to the material thus treated. We 
find, as might be expected from such a primitive practice, great 
variation in the colour and composition of brass coins , and the 
accidental presence of lead or other metal which would be contain- 
ed in the original ore. With regard to the casting or striking of 
the stycas, it would be well to have the opinion of an experienced 
metallurgist. To cast metal in moulds of a highly perishaole mate- 
rial was quite practicable. There were cakes of copper, known as 
« mat copper », in w^hich the perfect and beautiful impression of a 
mat, made of delicate woven reeds, is produced. This art of casting 
molten copper on reed mats had been long practised by the 
Japanese.

NUMISMATIC SOCIETIES, MUSEUMS, &c. 
Society for Frisian History, Antiquities and Philology. — Those who 
here and in the United States are interested in the study of the lan- 
guage of our nearest kinsmen, the Frisians, will be glad to learn 
now they are getting on in West Friesland. The country is seldom 
visited by Englishmen, except by yachtsmen, and now that we have 
abandoned Heligoland our contact with Frisian is small. The ranks 
of students of the language have also been thinned since the loss of 
Mr. W. J. Thoms by the death of Adley J. Cummins, of San 
Francisco, and latterly by that of another writer. Dr. Mathias de 
Vries, who had cultivated North Frisic. There are, however, still 
scholars on both sides of the Atlantic seriously engaged. We learn 
from the venerableDr. Dirks that the national museums at Leuwarden 
are well maintained. The large collection of the Society for Frisian 
History, Antiquities, and Philology, of which Dr. Dirks has been 
President since 1852, includes many prehistoric remains found in 
the explorations of the mounds. This society also occupies itself 
with Frisian literature, and there is, further, another society entirely 
devoted to the same subject. The transactions are published in ver- 
nacular Frisian, so as to keep up the vitality of the language. In 
many of the villages there are clubs where in the winter are repre- 
sented Frisian dramas. By continued exertions the national literature 
has been much enriched in the last half century. The people have 
been much delighted by a visit from the youthful Qjueen of the 
Netherlands, who inaugurated a second museum, which is to 
contain the library and gallery of paintings. Besides this the society 
has received lately a legacy of a large collection of porcelain, glass, 
antiquities, and 14,000 coins. The old museum already comprised 
18,000 coins, and is particularly rich in Frisian coins of the Middle 
Ages. (Athaeneum.) 

Numismatic Society of London, 16 February. — Sir J. Evans, 
President, in the chair. — M. C. Farcinet was elected a Member, 
and the Vicomte B. de Jonghe and MM. F. Gnecchi and A. 
Lobbecke Honorary Members. — The President exhibited a half- 
crown of the new coinage, 1893, and expressed an opinion that 
while the reverse was open to criticism , the bust of Her Majesty 
on the obverse would meet with general approbation. — Mr. H. 
Montagu exhibited an aureus of the Cornelia Gens, olw, head 
of Jupiter, rev. eagle on thunderbolt. This coin is thought to 
have been struck during the preparations for the war against 
Mithridates by Cn. Cornelius Lentulus Marcellinus, who was 
qu^stor in 74 B.C., and who, on one of the denarii of the time, 
styles himself cvrator denariis flandis ex senatvs consvlto. If

this coin, as M. Babelon supposes, was struck at Rome itself, it is 
additionally interesting as being the only aureus issued at Rome 
before Qesar's time. — Mr. L. A. Lawrence exhibited three York 
pennies of Henry VI. (light coinage, m.m. key), Richard III. 
(m.m. sun and rose), and Henry VII. (m.m. rose). — Mr. Grueber 
read the portion of Mr. Keary's introduction to vol. ii. of the 
* Qtalogue of Anglo-Saxon Coins in the British Museum ' which 
relates to the period between the reigns of Egbert and Alfred the 
Great. In discussing the types of the coins of the West Saxon kings 
the writer showed their connexion with other coinages of the same 
time in England, and identified most of the barbarous coins bearing 
the name of Alfred as imitations made by the Vikings during their 
occupation of various parts of the country. Mr. Kcary also snowed 
that the '* Dorobernia" type of Egbert had its origin in the well- 
known monogram of Charlemagne, and that the prototype of the 
London monogram on Alfred's coins was to be found on a coin of 
the Viking leader Halfdan, who occupied London in a.d. 874.

fact that J. Sanford Sultus has become a Life Member. The Room 
Committee call attention to the recent addition to the Rooms of two 
glass top solid wall cases each eight feet long, with closets beneath, 
affording facilities for the permanent exhibition of coins and 
medals. These cabinets were the gift of the following members of 
the Society — John M. Dodd Jnr., Charles H. Wright, William 
Peillon, Charles Pryer, Herbert Valentine, Edward Grob, H. Russell 
Drowne and Bauman L. Belden. To Mr. Charles H. Wright the 
Society is also indebted for three new electric light fixtures. The 
Columbian Exhibit Committee reported that so little space had 
been alloted to them at the Chicago Exposition that they had decid- 
ed to abandon the project and in place recommended a public 
exhibition in New- York at about the time of the Annual Meeting. 
The Librarian reported additions of 27 volumes, 12 pamphlets and 
no catalogues received since the last meeting. The principal donors 
were Wm. S. Baker, Daniel Parish Jr., Hon. L. Bradford Prince, 
Dr. Joseph Wiener, William R. Weeks and Isaac H. Wood. A 
special donation of fifty handsome pamphlet cases had also been 
received from Mr. Benjamin Betts. The Curator of Numismatics 
reported a munificent donation from Daniel Parish Jr., President, 
of 85 silver, i gold, and 240 copper Medals — also 97 silver, and 
70 copper coins, also donations from L. Bayard Smith, L. Zoellner, 
The Gorham Mfg. Co., Messrs Black Starr and Trost, and others. 
A total of 508 pieces having been received. Special attention was 
called to three silver medals of Columbus from the Gorham Mfg. 
Co. which were the ninth, tenth and eleventh struck when the die 
finally broke and was destroyed. The rarity of these interesting gifts 
was greatly appreciated. H. Russell Drowne, Secretary.

FINDS 

We hear from Athens that Dr. Tsoundas has discovered on some 
fragments of vases of the age of Mycenae traces of inscriptions, 
which if Greek, will be the most ancient known examples of Greek 
writing. Traces of writing were observed some years ago by Prof. 
Sayce on pottery disinterred by Schliemann in the Troad; but the 
characters seem to have belonged to the Cypriot syllabic system, or 
to some such system at that time predominant in Asia Minor. The 
Mycenaean pottery being as old at least as the eleventh century B. C, 
the character of the signs now discovered by Dr. Tsoundas is anxiously 
awaited , as they will throw light on early writing in Greece and 
on the origin ot the so-called Mycenaean civilization.

Aftenjk^ards, when Philip planned the invasion of Persia, his 
most ambitious dreams, perhaps, never reached the vast extent 
which his son's conquests actually realized. Even Alexander 
himself, on hearing ot Philip's victories, is said to have lament- 
ed that his father would leave nothing for him to conquer so 
little can even the most comprehensive mind grasp of the future. 
** .... fertur Pellaeus Eoum 
Qpi domuit Porum, cum prospera s«pe Philippi 
Audiret, laetos inter flevisse sodales, 
Nil sibi vincendum patris virtute relinqui. " 

Claudiariy de Iv. Cons. Hon. Panegyr., 374-377- 

In the summer of B. C. 354, Alexander crossed the Hellespont 
at the head of thirty thousand infantry and four thousand five 
hundred cavalry. He forced the passage of the Granicus in spite 
of all the efforts of Memnon, tne ablest officer of the Persian 
army, and afterwards defeated Darius himself in two decisive 
battles at Issus and Arbela. On the death of Darius, in B.C. 3 30, 
Alexander followed his murderer Bessus to the frontiers of 
Baaria, where he was obliged to give up the pursuit in conse- 
quence of the simultaneous revolt of the satraps of Aria, Dran- 
giana and Arachosia, With characteristic rapidity he made a forc- 
ed march of about seventy miles to Artakoana, the capital of 
Aria with his cavalry and mounted archers, and nearly surpris- 
ed the revolted satrap in his palace. 

There Alexander seems to have paused in his career to con- 
sider his present position and future movements. He had just 
before heard of the assumption of the regal title of Artaxerxes 
by Bessus, in Baaria ; and the organized revolt of these Eastern 
satraps now showed him that resistance had not died with 
Darius. His first plans were most probably confined to the humil- 
iation of Persia ; but they seem gradually to have been enlarg- 
ed by success, until they embraced the complete subjugation 
of the Persian empire, and the conquest of India, even to the 
mouth of the Ganges. Alexander's comprehensive mind contem- 
plated much more than a predatory excursion, resulting only 
in plunder ; and when he determined on the conquest of Bactria 
and India, he had almost formed plans for their permanent 
occupancy and future government. Indeed, after his death there 
was found amongst his papers the rough draught of a scheme 
for the amalgamation of the different nations of Europe and 
Asia into one people under his own single rule. This he purpos- 
ed to effect by securing the good- will of his conquered subjects. 
How well he succeeded in nis purpose was afterwards shown 
by the peaceful submission of the eastern provinces to the sway 
of the Seleukidae, which was quite undisturbed for more than 
two generations. 

With his usual judgment, Alexander now determined to leave 
no enemy behind him. He therefore turned aside from the pur- 
suit of Bessus, to crush the rebellious satraps of Aria, Drangiana, 
and Arachosia. This being done, he resumed his pursuit of 
Bessus through the territories of the Paropamisadae to Bactria. 
On crossing the Oxus into Sogdiana, Bessus was delivered into 
his hands by Spitamenes, the governor of the province. 

The whole country then submitted to the conqueror, and 
Grecian garrisons were established in all the principal cities. 
When Spiumenes betrayed Bessus, he no doubt thought that 
he would be permitted to retain his own government, and that, 
on the departure of Alexander, he might be able to form Sog- 
diana into an independent kingdom. He now openly rebelled, 
and so great was his skill that ne managed to keep the field for 
two entire years, when, being signally defeated, he was treach- 
erously murdered by his Scythian allies. The spirit of organ- 
ized resistance died with this heroic Persian nobleman; yet 
many of the petty chiefs still held out, and retreated to their 
mountain fastnesses, where they vainly hoped that Alexander 
would be unable or unwilling to' follow them. But danger only 
infiamed his natural ardour, while difficulty stimulated his 
energy and increased his perseverance. His romantic disposition 
sought danger wherever she was to be found, and he courted 
her, as the knights of chivalry wooed their brides, by force of 
arms. The two provinces of Sogdiana and Bactria were thus 
finally subdued and permanently annexed to the Macedonian 
empire in B.C. 328. 

Early in the following spring, Alexander crossed the Indian 
Caucasus, and at the ipioSov, or meeting of the three roads from 
Bactria, India and Arachosia, founded tne city of Alexandria ad 
Caucasum or Alexandria Opiane. The remainder of the year 
B.C. 527 was spent in the reduction of the various cities and 
stronjgholds of the Kabul valley, ending with the capture of 
the famous rockfort of Aornos. In the spring of B.C. 326 he 
crossed the Indus at Emholima, or Ohind, and marched to 
Taxila, where he was hospitably entertained by the Indian king 
Mophis, or Omphis. 

From Taxila, Alexander advanced to the Hydaspes, where he 
was so stoutly opposed by Porus that he could only pass the 
river by a stratagem. Then followed a great battle between the 
Greeks and Indians, the submission of Porus, and the founda- 
tion of the cities of Niksea and Bukephala. Next came the cap- 
ture of the hill-fortress of Sangala, and the advance to the 
Hyphasis, beyond which the Greek army, dispirited by long 
marches and the warlike charaaer of the people, refused to pro- 



ceed. There, says Gibbon, ** on the eastern bank of the Hyphasis, 
on the verge of the desert, the Macedonian hero halted and 
wept. " Then retracing his steps to the banks of the Hydaspes 
at Nikaea, he prepared a fleet to carry him to the Indian Ocean. 
On his voyage down the Hydaspes, towards the end of B.C. 326, 
he received tne submission of Sopeithes,or Sophites,who possess- 
ed the large tract of country between the Indus and the 
Hydaspes, in which the valuable salt mines are situated. Con- 
tinuing his descent of the river, he reached the junction of the 
Akesines, or Chendb, from whence he made a successful expe- 
dition against the Oxydrakae and Malli, ending with the capture 
of their chief city, wnich was almost certainly Multan. Thence 
sailing down the Indus, he conauered successively the kingdoms 
of Musikanus, Oxykanus, and Maeris of Patalene, and reached 
the Indian Ocean about the middle of B.C. 3 25. 

From the mouth of the Indus, Alexander returned to Patala, 
leaving Nearchus in command of the fleet, with orders to sail 
for the mouth of the Euphrates. He then began a long and 
harassing march through Gedrosia and Kamania to Persepolis 
and Babylon, where he shortly after died in May, B.C. 323. 

At a meeting of the principal officers held after Alexander's 
death, his half-brother Arrhidaeus, and his expected son by 
Roxana, were declared joint sovereiras of the magnificent 
empire which he had raised. The chief provinces were divided 
amongst the most powerful officers. Europe was assigned to 
Lysimachus, Antipater, and Kraterus ; Egypt was given to Pto- 
lemy ; Asia Minor was divided between Antigonus, Kassander, 
and Eumenes, and some others of less note; while the provinces 
of upper Asia were left under the charge of the governors 
appointed by Alexander. 

The eastern provinces of Alexander's empire were Bactriana, 
Ariana, and India, or the countries watered by the Oxus, the 
Helmand, and the Indus. 

Bactriana comprised Sogdiana, Bactria, and Margiana, all of 
which were included by Alexander in one satrapy under Philip. 

Ariana comprised Aria und Drangiana in one satrapy, under 
Stasanor; and Arachosia and Gedrosia in a second satrapy, 
under Sibunius. 

India comprised the three satrapies of the Paropamisadae the 
Punjab, and Sindh. The first, to the west of the Indus, was 
placed under Oxyartes, the father of Roxana. The second, 
which included the kingdoms of Taxiles, Porus, and Sophites, 
with the territories of the Oxydrakae and Malli, to the east of 
the Indus, was placed under the military governorship of Philip, 
the son of Machetas, while the civil rule was left in the hands 
of the native sovereigns. The third, which included the king- 
doms of Musikanus, Oxykanus, Sambus, and Maeris of Patalene, 
on the country now forming Sindh, was entrusted to Python, 
the son of Agenor. 

(From *' Alexander's Successors in the East " by Major-Gener- 
al A. Cunningham, R. E., London, 1884.) 

Abundant as the extant money in gold and silver is, which 
Philip II. coined from his mines in Macedonia and Thrace, that 
of Alexander III. is much more so. A large portion of these 
have been struck in Asia Minor long after the death of Alexan- 
der. 

In our catalogue of this series, we shall follow D"" B. V. Head's 
classification in ** Historia Numorum " and L. Muller's in

Silver Coinage. Tetradrachns, 

" The tetradrachms ", says I> B. V. Head (Historia Numo- 
rum, p. I99)> ** have been arranged by M. Muller in seven 
classes, wmch he distinguishes in the main by the following 
charaaeristics : 

I. Thick fabric, severe style, Zeus seated in stiff attitude, his right leg 

visible in front of his left, (B. Af. Guide, PI. xxx, 5) 

II. Similar, but with some slight variations. (B, Af. Guidey pi. xxvii. 

2, 4, 5-) 

III. Similar, but of more elegant style. (B. Af. Guide, pi. xxx, 6.) 

IV. Fabric less lumpy ; style nne ; work usually (but not always) care- 

ful. Right leg of Zeus drawn back behind left, {B, M, Guide, 
pi. XXVII. 6, 7, 8; pi. xxx, 10, 11 ; pi. xxxi. 12-14.) 
V. Similar. Fabric flatter, and flan more spread. Style free, and 
usually superficial. (B, Af. Guide, pi. xxxvi, 1-4.) 
VI. Thin outspread fabric. Work usually sketchy, but not rude or 

barbarous. (5. Af. Guide^ pi. XLViii, 1-3.) 
VII. Thin outspread fabric. Work rude, and frequently barbarous. 
(S. M, Guide, pi. Liii, 1-2 ; pi. LXiv, 2.) 
These classes belong in part to Europe, and in part to Asia, 
and may be arranged somewhat as follows : — 

B. C. 334-300. and later. 



» 12 6 



EUROPE 

Class I. Kingdom of Macedon, &c. 
» III. » » 



Gass V. Thrace.

most to Imperial times.

B. C. 300-280. 

Qass IV. Macedon, &c., Pelopon- 1 Class IV. Cilicia, Syria, Phoe- 
nesus and Islands. | nicia, and Egypt. 

B. C. 250-200. 

Class V. Greek cities of west- 
ern Asia Minor. 

Phoenician cities (circ.244- 
185). 

After B. C. 200. 

Class VI. Free cities of west- 
em Asia Minor (B.C.190- 
133)- 

The attributions to individual cities depend upon the corre- 
spondence of the adjunct symbols with known coin-types of the 
aties in question. On the coins of the later classes these symbols 
in the held of the reverse are undoubtedly mint-marks, but 
there is not sufficient evidence to show that this was always the 
case on the coins of Classes I-IV, and in many cases we have no 
safer guide to the local attribution than a knowledge of the 
countries from which certain sorts of tetradrachms usually 
come to us. " 

Most of the tetradrachms we offer now for sale belong to a 
recent find in Greece. As there is too much uncertainty about 
their chronological and topographical classification, we shall not 
try to catalogue them in any order whatever. When possible, 
however, we shall indicate by Roman numerals the class which 
they belong to and the name of the town or province of their 
issue, according to Muller.

ROMAN CONSULAR 

(Continued from p. ISS-) 

JVLIA 

This illustrious family is that of Julius Csesar. — The name 
Julius is derived from lulus, whom some believe to be Asca- 
nius, ihe son of Aeneas ; and others, the son of that Ascanius. 
In claiming to be descended from this stock, Julius Caisar prid- 
ed himselt on his origin from the Goddess of Beauty, and 
hence the images of Venus, and of Aeneas carrying Anchises, 
which are often found on his denarii. Be the question of pedi- 
gree decided as it may, it appears that after the destruction of 
Alba, the family came to Rome, and eventually furnished twelve 
personages, honoured as Impcratores, with the highest offices 
and dignities of the Roman Commonwealth. (Stei'enson's 
** Rotnan Coins ".)

crew. 



To Sir Evan Nepeaan, Bart. 



. I have the honor to acquaint you that on my return from convoy- 
.ing the Packet to the Northward in His Majesty s Schooner uiider 
my command on the s^Mnstant at three P M.; the Island of Tortola 
bearing South, distant about sixty eight Leagues, saw a strange sail 
to the Southward; suspecting her to be an enemy, made all sail in 
chase- at half past three observed her to be a ship standing towards 
us; at' four made the signal 275 to her which not being answered 
shortened sail and cleared for action ; at half past four, being within 
musket shot on our weather bow, she hauled up her course, hove 



to and hoisted French national Colours, when I discovered her to be 
a ship apparently just out of port, mounting twenty two guns and 
conclude from the number of men seen on her decks as also her tops 
there could not be less than two hundred. 

When we came within pistol shot she commenced the action by 
firing her starboard broadside and a heavy fire of musketry which 
we returned with the weather broadside wore round, hove to and 
fired the starboard broadside. 

The fire was kept up without intermission on both sides until a 
quarter past five, when the enemy began to slacken her fire, filled, 
bore up and endeavoured to rake us, but upon observing our prepa- 
rations to board her by manning the rigging, she ceased firing and 
made all sail to the Northward on which we filled and made sail after 
her, keeping up a fire of musketry; at seven, found her getting fast 
away; at half past eight lost sight of her; seing there was no possi- 
bility of coming up, at ten gave over the chase, found great part of 
the standing and running rigging shot away ; the bulwarks, masts, 
yards, etc., much damaged; one marine killed and four seamen 
wounded, though the loss on the part of the enemy I believe from 
their apparent confusion to be much greater, and, Sir, when I reflect 
on the superiority in point of force of the enemy, I cannot say enough 
in praise of those brave officers and men I have the honor to com- 
mand and from whose gallant conduct on the occasion, particularly 
when ordered to prepare to board I felt perfectly confident of carrying 
the French ship in a few minutes on the second attack, had not her 
superior sailing frustrated our intentions. 

1 should feel unmindful of my duty, was I to omit representing to 
you the great assistance I received trom Mr. Salmon the Master on 
this as well as on every other occasion. 

• I have the honor to be, etc. 
W. Carr, 

Commodore Hood, Commander in Chief. 

P. S. — Upon my arrival at Tortola, I had information of the 
exact particular, of the French ship from the President which he 
assured me was well ascertained at S' Thomas's, from which place 
she sailed on the fourth instant, about twenty eight hours before we 
fell in with her. , „ ^ . ^ r 

She proves to be the " Grande D^cidi . Captain Quay, from 
Guadeloupe, carrying tv^^enty two nine pounders and two hundred 
and thirty men, eighty of which were soldiers.

A FEW RARE GREEK COINS 

PUBLlSHhD RECENTLY 
BY 

M. ALEXANDRE BOUTKOWSKI GLINKA. 



An Alliance Coin of the Islands of Kos and KLlymna. 




Obv. KniHN Laureate head of Asklepios to right; in front, a 
serpent entwined around a stick. 

t^. A juvenile figure of the god Terminus in centre of the field. 
To left, a laurel-branch on socle ; to right the legend, KAAYMNIHN. 

JE, 12^ mill. 

Amongst the numerous coins of the Island of Kos, existing in 
museums and private collections, the specimen described above is 
the only one known making allusion to political and commercial 
intercourse of this island with other countries or towns. 

A Gistophorus of the town of Synnada in Phrygia. 




Obv. Cista mystica, with half-open lid, from which a serpent 
issues : the whole in wreath of ivy. 

^L. Two coiled serpents, with heads erect; between them a bow- 
case; to left lYNNA; above, EM (probably the initials of magis- 
trate's name) ; in the field, to right, a small owl standing on amphora, 
an allusion to the Athenian origin of the Greek colonv of Synnada. 

M,. 25 mill. 

This coin is apparently unique. It was struck at Synnada, a town 
in Phrygia. The cistoph'ori, y.i7TC95pci, are generally local coins of 
the kingdom of Pergamum ; however, they are found also of the 
towns of Ephesus in Ionia, Sardes and Tralles in Lydia, Apamea 
and Laodikeia in Phrygia. 

A coin of Sibidunda in Phrygia, struck by the emperor Maximus. 



Obv. TA. e. I. OYHP. MAIIMON. CE. Bust laureated, draped 
and diademed of Maximus, to right. 

]^. CIBlAOY-NAenN Artemis hunting to right. 

JE. 19 mill. 

Amongst the coins known of that town, some are described by 
Mionnet (vide SuppL, t. VII, p. 616), with bust of Caracalla; 
others by D"^ Imhoof-Blumer {Monnaies grecques, p. 411, n° 149, 
auton.; Griech. Munien, 1890, p. 222, n° 735, auton.; ibid,, p. 223, 
n° 736), wMth bust of Crispina ; one by Arthur Engel {Revue numis- 
matique, 1884), with bust of Tranquillina; and another by Prince 
Pierre de Saxe-Coburg Gotha and Bragance (Revue numism.y 1892), 
with bust of Caracalla. These are aoout all the coins known of 
Sibidunda. 

A small bronze coin of Ephesus 
bearing the effigy of the emperor Otho. 



Obv. lEBA NnT(I). Laureated head of Otho, to right. 



^. Above, E<t>- A stag, standing, to right. 

JE. 16 mill. 

No genuine bronze coins of Roman fabric are known of this 
emperor, and the colonial pieces struck at Antioch, &c., are all of 
the greatest rarity. 

A recently discovered small coin of Hyllarima in Karia. 



Obv. eni XeiM— O(eeOY) APXONTOC. Veiled bust of Goddess, 
turned to right. 

]^. YAAAPIME— flN, in two lines. Winged Genius, standing 
in slow quadriga to right, and holding a torch. 

JE Of extreme rarity. 

The town of Hyllarima was situated on the river Meander, 
between Mylasa and. Mughla, in Karia, according to the account of 
Hierokles. 

The type of the I^. seems to allude to the torch-races, which 
took place in that town (Xa[i.7:a5r^96pov). 

A bronze coin of Eubiotes, 
king of Pontus and the Cimmerian Bosporus. 



Obv. Head laureated, diademed and bearded, to right. 

^L . In centre of the field, two palm-branches; to left, a monog. 
BAE; to right, the letters Bl, and below O. The two palm-branches 
are disposed so as to form the letter Y, and the end, a T. (The 
full legend would thus be, BAIIAEHI EYBIOTOY.) 

JE. 20 mill. 

A small bronze coin of Pautalia, 
bearing the effigy of Emperor Caracalla. 



Obv. AY-K-C — ANTHNGINO— C. Young bare bust of emperor 
to right. 

I^. OYAniAC-nAYAAIAC. Amphora. 

JE 4|. 

Pautalia was situaded on the upper Strymon, south of Mt. Haemus, 
in Thrace. 

A Bronze Medallion struck at Tium under Faustina II. 




Obv. OAYCTGINA CGBACTH. Bust of Faustina, to right. 

^. MAP-AYP-ANTHNei-TIANOI. Marcus Aurelius on horse- 
back to right, holding an eagle, &c. 

iE. 33 mill. 

Tium stood at the mouth of the river Billaeus, on a promontory 
on the coast of the Euxine, between Amastris and Herakleia.

LES 

IDENTIFICATIONS GfOGRAPHIQUES des MONNAIES M£R0VIN6IENNES 
et le Catalogue de la Bibliothdque Nationale. 

Dans un precedent article sur la numismatique m^rovingienne', 
j'ai rappele combien il est difficile d'identifier avec des localit^s 
actuelles les noms inscrits sur les monnaies de cette ipoque. Ce 
n'est qu'apres de longues recherches, une 6tude attentive du style et 
la comparaison des types, dans toutes les regions, qu'on est parvenu 
i obtenir des resuhats d'une importance incontestable pour la gio- 
graphie et la hnguistique de Tancienne France. 

II m'a paru int^ressant de rechercher aujourd'hui quels sont les 
progr^s r^alis^s dans cette voie, et la publication du Catalogue des 
tnoftnaies nierovingiennes de la Bibliothiqm nationale^ par M. Maurice 
Prou, sous-bibliothecaire au d^partement des m^dailles et antiques^, 
me permettra de resumer et de priciser autant que possible les attri- 
butions geographiques qui semblent d^finitivement acquises. 

Ce Catalogue, tel qu'il est congu, est un effort considerable et le 
fruit d'un long travail ; il fait honneur i M. Prou. On y trouve une 
description rigoureuse et raisonn^e de chaque pi^ce, avec les auto- 
rit6s qui viennent appuyer les identifications, d'ailleurs bastes sur 
une etude comp^tente du style. Ce livre, modestement appeli 
Catalogue^ est precede d'une introduction tres itendue, pleine d'^ru- 
dition et d'observations nouvelles, comprenant six chapitres sur : 
— les monnaies dans les lois salique et ripuaire, — les monnaies 
d'or pseudo-impiriales, — les royales, — celles des Eglises, — celles 
des Mon^taires, — les monnaies d'argent et de bronze, — et la 
pal^ographie. — Dans le Catalogue qui suit, M. Prou dterit 2.914 
pifcces formant aujourd'hui la collection du Cabinet de France ', et 
qu'il divise en 5 groupes : 1° les pseudo-romaines, ou imitations de 
Justin et Justinien ; — 2° les monnaies royales, d'ateliers ind^ter-

Thiodebert P% Clotaire II, Dagobert P% Caribert II, Clovis II, 
Dagobert II (674-677"); 3° les nombreux triens mirovingiens, classes 
par ateliers, dans Tordre des 16 provinces romaines; 4° et 5** les mon- 
naies d'or et d'argent, d'attributions incertaines. — Je ne parlerai 
pas ici de quelques critiques poriant sur de petites erreurs de 
detail, impossibles '\ iviter dans une oeuvre de cette importance, 
hirissie de difficult^ techniques et d'obscuritis. Les pieces indichif- 
frables, par suite de ligendes tronquies ou diginiries, ont iti 
groupies sous le titre d ateliers indetermines^ i la suite des pieces 
certames de la Citi qui pourrait les revendiquer en raison du style et 
de la paliographie. 

Ce catalogue scientifique et raisonni du veritable tr^sor de mon- 
naies mirovingiennes de notre Bibliothique nationale, est accompa- 
gn^ de 36 planches, irks utiles pour la comparaison des types, et 
d'un index alphabetique ; il se termine par une Carte geographique 
toute nouvelle des ateliers monetaires mirovingiens complitant, 
au point de vue numismatique, les savants atlas historiques de 
M. Auguste Longnon. 

C'est avec cette excellente monographic que je commencerai le 
risum(i des identifications geographiques. Je pourrai augmenter et 
annoter plus tard ces premiers rfeultats, lorsque d'autres travaux 
en cours de publication auront paru et notamment le Traite de 
numismatique du moyen age, de MM. Engel et Serrure ^ et la Descrip^ 
tion generate des monnaies merovingiennes, dont s'occupe en ce moment 
M. de Belfort\ Les listes qui suivent ne sont done que provisoires. 

Ces listes presentent, dans les 16 anciennes provinces romaines :

M. A. de Barthdemy, notre Eminent numismatiste, qui a foit une 
itude approfondie du monnayage m^rovingien, a signale 721 ate- 
liers monttaires. Je dois dire, toutefois, qu'il y a des domes pour 
plusieurs ateliers compris dans les relev& ci-aprfes. M. Aarien 
Blanchet, dans son Manuel de numisniatique du moyen age et moderne 
(1890), n'a relev^ que 137 identifications, parce que beaucoup 
d'autres ne lui paraissaient pas alors suffisamment ^tablies, et M. de 
Barth^lemy n'a pas encore cru pouvoir nous donner une liste d 
laquelle son nom aurait ajout^ une grande valeur. N^anmoins, le 
catalogue de M. Prou fait faire un grand pas i la g^ographie de 
r^poque mirovingienne.

THE GODS OF ANCIENT GREECE 

AS REPRESENTED ON THE COINS 

The ideal portraits of the deities of the Greek mythology form 
the leading types of the Grecian coinage. In grandeur of treatment, 
some of these idealised impersonalities surpass any modern efforts 
of a similar class; such, for instance, as the magnificent head of 
Proserpine or Ceres, on the well known Sicilian medallions. 

The earliest representations of the gods by the Greeks consisted 
of mere masses of stone, the descent of aerolites having possibly 
given rise to the idea that stones falling upon the earth in a manner 
so wonderful were especial manifestation of the presence of a deity, 
which gave rise to the personification of divinity under the form of 
a stone. That such an impression did prevail is proved by the stone 
deity, Elagabal, worshipped in Syria, the principal seat of the 
worship of aerolitic stones, which is described as a dark coloured 
conical stone, to which was attached the tradition that it fell from 
heaven. This stone was carried to Rome in great state by the emperor 
Eliogabalus, which was the origin of his surname, by which he is 
better known than by that of his family. 

Venus was anciently worshipped at Paphos under the form of a 
similar stone, as were also the Juno of the Thespians, and the Diana 
of Icaria, and in other cases a stone column was made to represent 
a divinity. The Dioscuri being represented in Lacasdemonia by two 
parallel pieces of stone, united by two transverse pieces. 

There are a few examples of very rude heads of deities upon 
Greek coins, but the earliest worthy of attention are those of the 
archaic period above referred to ; some of which are remarkable for 
their careful and minute execution, and at the same time a certain 
grandeur and simplicity which distinguishes all works of Greek art 
among the coins of this class. Those of Naxos bearing the head of 
Bacchus are perhaps the most remarkable.

As examples of the finest treatment of some of the heads of this 
class of types, the following may be cited. The Persephone on the 
coins of Syracuse, of Zeus Ammon on those of Cyrene ; the Pallas 
on the coins of Athens, Thurium, Corinth, etc., that of Arethusa on 
the coins of Clazomene ; the Apollo on those of Rhodes and on 
Carian coins; the Hera on those of Elis; the Zeus on the coins of 
Tarentum, Macedonia, etc.; the Dodonaean Zeus on the fine 
coin of Pyrrhus. (^Fide, Humphreys, The Coin Collector's Manual^ 
London^ 1880,) 

Zeus (Zeu^), called Jupiter by the Romans, the greatest of the 
Olympian Gods, the father of gods and men, the most high and 
powerful among the immortals, whom all others obey. He is armed 
with thunder and lightning, and the shaking of his aegis produces 



ZEUS OF OTRICOLI. 

{yalican, Rome.) 

Storm and tempest. Zeus was the son of Kronos and Rhea. While 
still a youth he hurled Kronos from his throne, conquered the 
Titans and giants, and thus established his power for ever. When he 
drew lots with his brothers for the government of the world, 
Poseidon obtained the sea. Hades the Tower world, and Zeus the 
rule of Heaven, while the earth remained common property of all 
three. 

A great many Greek coins give representations of Zeus in his 
different characters and attributes. The finest head is undoubtedly 
found on the tetradrachms of Elis (Circ. B. C. 312-271).

CORRESPONDENCE 



A REMARKABLE MANX PIECE 



Some few months ago a copper piece about the size of the current 
penny, perhaps a little larger, to me, of a very remarkable character 
was found by a farm-man under the plough at Ballaugh, n*" Ramsey, 
Isle of Man, of which the following is the received description. 

Inscription in Manx : ^^ Hiare skillin peesh,'' 

Anglice, Four shilling piece. 

Design : Obv. Head of King. ^. S* George and Dragon. 

This was sold to a local wealthy collector for € i. 

The literal and grammatical accuracy of the Manx inscription 
alone has induced me to place this paragraph before your readers. 

The Manx language being now practically a dead language and 
when understood being understood phonetically only and not in 
any grammatical sense even to the extent of reading and speUing, 
except by a limited number of educated people, and the fact that the 
information was given to me by a labouring man, all seem to suggest 
that there may be some authentication for the find. I believe I ask 
a hopeless question when I wish to know if any reader can throw 
light on this obscure piece?

Gentlemen, 
Herewith I beg to send you a note which may be of interest to 
the readers of the Numismatic Circular. 
My latest purchases : 

1. Die of the Reverse of one of Abu S'aid's coins, similar to the 
reverse of n° 240, vol. VI, British Museum catalogue of oriental 
coins, but without the four rosettes. The mint place is Bflibi'rt and 
the date 733 Jekhanieh. 

2. Muhammed Shih, Ispahan 1254, gold; diameter 1.2 inch. 
Obv. The shah crowned, and armed w^ith sabre, seated on 

throne, facing; to 1. a vase with flowers. 
Rev. In circle of points : Zrb dar alsltnh asphan 12J4, 
In margin : Shahnshh \ anbia \ Mhtnd in three tablets, separated 

by three lozenges, each containing ya'ali. 
I have never seen this coin (medal ?) before and it seems the 

B. M. does not possess it.

ROMAN CONSULAR 

(Continued from p. 17 J.) 
JVNIA 

This celebrated Roman family was patrician under the kings, 
but, as it appears from coins, was regarded as plebeian under the 
consular government. The surnames are Brutus, Silanus, and 
perhaps Libo. It took its name from Junius, the companion of 
Aeneas, from whom, as Dion Halic. writes, this family derived 
its origin. It took the cognomen of Brutus on account of the 
idiotic folly which, through fear of Tarquin, was feigned by 
Lucius Junius, previous to the overthrow of the monarchy, as 
Plutarch informs us. Of this renowned avenger of his country's 
liberty upon a proud tyrant and his licentious sons, there are 
no coins extant of contemporaneous date ; but in honour of the 
man who was the first consul, with his colleague Collatinus, 
after the expulsion of the Tarquins, the head of Lucius Junius, 
with the inscription BRVTVS, has been placed on the obverse 
of a denarius belonging to the Servilio family, which bears on 
its obverse the naked head of Servilius AHALA. 

Of the name of Brutus there are also two individuals recorded 
on the coins of the Junia family-viz., M. Junius Brutus, likewise 
called Caepio, the assassin of Caesar the Diaator, and Decimus 
Junius Brutus, an orator and lawyer, who each of them gained 
a very conspicuous place in the history of their age. 

The coinage of this family, which consists of more than 
seventy varieties, exhibits an interesting type of a denarius, of 
which the following is a description : — 

Obv. LIBERTAS. — Head of Liberty. 

IfL. BRVTVS. — The march of the Consul (Consulis Pro- 
cessus) between two lictors, carrying the fasces, and preceded 
by a verger or usher (acunsus). 

Some of the silver pieces arc restored by Trajan, and are rarer 
than the original coins.

QUERIES 

1. I have a bronze medal size 48 millimetres. Obverse : Open 
wreath with crown at the top. ** Fear God. Honour the King.' in 
three lines within the wreath. *' Merit" in exergue. Reverse : 
Lord's prayer in 15 lines. 

Can any of your readers inform me what this medal was struck 
for, and how much is it worth? F. J. 

2. I have lately found a silver Persian piece (said to be from 
Tabriz). It is marked with the letters " JHS " and the oriental date 
''925." It is a thick piece and weighs 2f grammes. I can make no 
suggestion as to how it comes to be marked with these letters and 
shall be grateful to get some information as to its history. 

R. S. N. W. (U. S. A.) 
Can any one give me the attribution and history of this piece ? 
Silver, thin, size 14 mill. 

Obv. V over a star of dots over a posthorn {}) ring of large dots 
around the circumference. Rev. the same incuse. 




A well known numismatist suggests to me that this may have been struck 
for Buchorn, in the old Province ot Suabia, Germany. 

REPLIES 

In reply to Query n° 2 in the Numismatic Circular, the piece 
there no doubt is not Persian, but a Kashmere rupee. I was told in 
Kashmere that some years ago the then Rajah got from Calcutta a 
country born European or Curasian to oversee sundry matters and 



among others the Mint. He was told to produce silver rupees and 
could apparently think of no device more appropriate than the 
letters I.H.S. which he had seen on the Altar cloth at Bishop's 
College in Calcutta. — The Oriental date must be 1925 Samoat, 
which is equivalent 10 1868 A.D. — There are copper coins also 
with the same letters. M. N. See. Lon. 

The Maharajah of Kashmere, commenting on the success and 
strength of the British in India, asked Sir Henry Lawrence 
whether he could tell the cause and the secret. Sir Henry, who was 
busy writing, answered that he believed it to lie in their religion. 
The Maharajah said he believed so too, and with the strange 
superstition of an Oriental, cast about in his own mind how to 
benefit by, without sharing in the Englishman's faith. He asked Sir 
Henry to give him one ofthe signs of his creed to engrave on the 
new coins he was about to mint. Sir Henry hastily stretched the 
cross with the initials of the Saviour I.H.S., and the symbol ofthe 
Holy Trinity, a triangle, on the design handed to him. The former 
of these signs was engraved on the coins, which are still in circu- 
lation in Kashmere. 

From '' Cross of Conquest " by M' Alfred Lindall, pub : Sunday 
School Union, j6 Uld Bailey, Lonaon E. C. 

In the March Number of the Numismatic Circular, B. S. N. W. 
asks for information regarding a coin of A. H. 925 *' marked with 
the letters J. H. S. " which he wrongly describes as Persian. The 
coin is an issue of Kashmir and the letters he mentions are found on 
some of the half rupees and rupees of that state, the story of the 
origin of their appearance being as follows. It is said, that Lord 
Lawrence was one day sitting in his study at work, in India, when 
the Maharajah of Kashmir was announced, and in the course of a 
conversation which turned on the marvellous growth ofthe British 
power in India, the Maharajah enquired to what it was attributable. 
To this question Lord Lawrence unhesitatingly replied that it was 
owing to English Christianity. Asked for some sign of this religion 
he wrote on a piece of paper the letters J. H. S. combined with the 
sign of the cross , and on the next issue of a new coinage in 
Kashmir the Maharajah, though he omitted the cross, had the 
mystic letters of our creed engraved thereon in the belief so- 
common to Orientals that a '' lucky mark " brings prosperity. —

THE GODS OF ANCIENT GREECE 
as represented on the coin». 

(Continued from p. 202 ) 

In a similar way and under various attributions are depicted and 
mentioned on the ancient coins of Greece most of the divinities of 
the Hellenic mythology. Collectors of fine art, all know the beautiful 
head of Hera on the coins of Elis, or that of Apollo on the gold 
staters ot Philip 11 of Macedon. The coins of Athens, bearing the 
head of Pallas Athena (the Minerva of the Romans) were struck for 
over three centuries. Venus (the Aphrodite of the Greeks, or 
Astarte of the Phoenicians) is also variously represented on the 
denarii of Republican and Imperial Rome, as well as on numerous 
coins of her colonies. Ares (Mars), Demeter (Ceres), Persephone 
(Proserpina), Cupido (Amor), Helios (Sol), Hermes (Mercurius), 
Janus, Isis, Nike (Victory), Poseidon (Neptunus\ Pan, Pluto, 
Saturnus anH ^ Inrap number of other murholomcal deities appear 
on the early ( 



HEAD OF APHRODITE FROM MELOs (Parts, Louvre.) 

Our readers who do not possess Prof. Percy Gardner's beautiful 
work on '' The types of Greek Coins " will no doubt be interested in 
the following extract. 

*' It is well known that religion lay in almost every matter at the 
basis of Greek life. The art, the drama, the poetry of that gifted 
people were originally consecrated to the service of the Gods. The 
Gods were revered not only as higher powers, but as founders of 
cities and ancestors of families, as the inventors of all useful arts, 
and the constructors of valuable public works. Thus too coinage is 
supposed to have been invented in honour of the deities, and cer- 
tainly bears from its earliest infancy the signs of their influence and 
marks of dedication to them. 

In the times when coinage took its rise the temples of the Gods 
were the great requisitories of treasure, of which the priests well 
knew how to make use. ** They made use of the sacred precincts of 
the temples as places for the reception of valuable deposits in times 
of universal insecurity ; they made advances to communities and 
individuals; they took part in profitable undertakings; on their 
support was dependent the possibility of colonisation beyond the 
seas. As, therefore, power of wealth concentrated in the temples, it 
becomes highly probable that all essential progress in the knowledge 
of the value of the precious metals, as well as the institution of 
money as a medium of exchange, emanated from these centres. " 

An examination of the early coins themselves will tend to 
strengthen this probability. Among all deities the most commercial 
in character was the Sidonian Astarte, a goddess related to the 
Babylonian Mylitta, and by the Greeks called sometimes Aphrodite, 
sometimes Artemis, and sometimes Hera, for indeed she resembled 
in some respects each of those deities. The sanctuary of this deity 
** formed the kernel of every Sidonian factory, whence we find her 
worship on all tiie coasts of the Archipelago devoted to maritime 
intercourse. Every occupation, trade or industry, such as fishing and 
mining, when pursued by the inhabitants, was under her protection. 
Through her means did the precious metals, with the Babylonian 



system of value and weights, make their way into Greece ". Now it 
is not a little remarkable that the sacred symbols of this deity and 
of her Greek equivalents are the most frequent on early coins. The 
lion at Sardes and at Samos, and Phocaea and Miletus, the cow 
suckling a calf at Eretria in Euboea, the dove at Sicyon, and more 
especially the tunnyfish at Cyzicus, and the tortoise at Aegina, are 
the figures which mark the earliest coins, and one and all of these 
creatures are closely connected with the worship of the commercial 
Sidonian goddess. That they mark the coin as belonging to her can 
scarcely be doubted, althou^jh a doubt may remain in wnat sense it 
was hers. And in view of this doubt it may be well to cite one or 
two important facts. In the Cnidian temple of the Pythian Apollo 
Mr. Newton discovered marble vessels marked with a lyre, and 
evidently thus indicated as the property of the God. Some of the 
coins of Miletus bear the inscription iy AiBujxwv icprj, plainly signi- 
fying that they at any rate belong in a peculiar degree to the temple 
of Didyma, and were there minted for the purposes of the priests. 
The mint at Rome was as we know in the temple of Juno Moneta, 
and it is more than probable that the Romans in this matter followed 
Greek precedent. Considering these and other facts it may be held 
to be probable, if not absolutely proved, that priests first issued 
stamped coin, and that the first mints were in temples. The priests 
of the Phoenician Aphrodite, says Curtius, *' first collected stores of 
the precious metals and marked with the symbol of the Deity the 
ingots belonging to the Temple-treasur)\ The weighed and stamped 
lumps of metal were then put into circulation to the furtherance of 
a commerce profitable to the priesthoods. " 

That the earliest coins were issued by temples is a theory, plaus- 
ible indeed and quite legitimate, but still a theory. But as to the 
religious meaning of coin-types there can be no question whatever. 
No doubt after the first, the issue of coin became a concern of muni- 
cipal and other government, and the types they bore were the arms 
ot the emblem specially belonging to the city whence they proceed- 
ed. But among the Greeks the arms of every city were religious. 
Those who are at all acquainted with the customs of Greek symbol- 
ism are aware that in sculpture and relief and painting cities are 
commonly personified by the guardian deity to whom they more 
especially belonged. Athens, in the reliefs in which she is represent- 
ed as rewarding with wreaths and honours citizens and strangers, 
regularly takes the shape of Pallas Athene. Smyrna is embodied in 
reliefs in the person of^iis foundress the Amazon Smyrna, Laodicea 
in its Zeus, and so forth. But to place the figure of the chief deity 
of cities on their coins, although that is sometimes done as early as 
the sixth century at Poseidonia, for instance, and Caulonia, and in 
Arcadia, is not usual. It was more usual to put merely the head of 
that deity, the part standing for the whole. Thus on some of the 
earliest coins of Athens, we find a head of Pallas, and on the earliest 
coins of Naxos, the island, we have a head of Dion3^sus. But it is 
still more usual, especially in Asia and in the very earliest ages of 
coining, to introduce on coin neither the form nor the head of a 
deity, but rather a symbol well-known and recognised in local cult 
as belonging to that deity. No doubt such symbol belonged to the 
town as well as the divinity, but the former had adopted it from the 
latter. Thus the owl belonged in a peculiar degree to Pallas, and 
from her it was adopted as a sign by the city of Athens; it was 
impressed on the Athenian coins from the first. And we are told 
that the Samian prisoners captured by Pericles in his celebrated 
expedition to Samos were marked or branded with an owl, which 
stamped them slaves of the Athenians. On the other hand the 
Samians branded upon their Athenian captives on the same occasion 
a ship, the ship being a symbol proper to the maritime deity of the 
Island whom the Samians called Hera, and from her taken by the 
city of Samos and impressed on its coins. 

It is of course generally recognized that in many cases the type 
of a coin is of religious meaning. Every one would allow that tne 
owl is a sign or representative of the goddess Pallas, that the lyre is 
a sign of Apollo, the wine-cup of Dionysus, the trident of Poseidon. 
But we may go beyond this admission and assert that all the types 
of early Greek coins are religious. This is by no means so generally 
allowed. For example : the early coins of Metapontum are marked 
with an ear of corn. This is frequently said to contain an allusion 
to the fertility of the Metapontine territory : but it is certain that it 
has reference rather to Demeter herself, the giver of fertility and

queen of cornfields. The shield of Boeotia and of Macedon are 
often supposed to be mere copies of the kind of armour in use in 
those districts respectively. In my opinion the Boeotian shield is the 
shield of Herakles and the Macedonian that of Ares, both of these 
being armed national divinities. The youth in the act of taming a 
bull, who appears on the money of certain cities of Thessaly, is not 
to my eyes an ordinary young man engaged in a feat fashionable in 
the country, but one of the national heroes of Thessaly, in the 
performance of some historic task, Jason perhaps, who had to yoke 
the brazen-footed oxen to the plough; and who, like all Greek 
heroes, had regular temples and priests and sacrifices at stated sea- 
sons. The rose at Rhodes contains no punning allusion to the 
name of the island, but is the flower sacred to the great semi-Greek 
sun-god of the iskmd. The parsley-leaf at Selinus does not merely 
allude to the abundance of the plant on the site of the city, but 
probably belongs to the Zeus of Nemea, who gave the parsley crown 
to the victors in his games. The horse at Pherae does not allude to 
the goodness of horses in that city but is a symbol of Poseidon, 
god of waves and streams, of which horses are the natural emblems. 
The wolf on the Argive coins does not show that when it was 
struck wolves were to be found in the mountains of Argolis, but 
belongs to either Ares or Apollo Lycius, two of the deities of the 
city. Instances might be indefinitely multiplied. On the early coins 
of Persia we find the Great King bending his bow ; and on the coins 
of Sidon, the king of that city moving in his chariot. But to the 
Greeks this tasted of barbarism. The gods alone had a right to the 
coin, the gods and deified heroes. The head of a man does not 
make its appearance on any Greek money until the successors of 
Alexander, having already raised him to the rank of a deity, put his 
efligy there; and their baser descendants, as they did not scruple 
to deify themselves, so neither did they scruple to usurp on coins 
the places of Olympian deities and national heroes.

The well-known lodiacal coins of Jahingir were certainl)' intend- 
ed to pass as ordinary money, and generally took the place of the 
common coinage of the Agra mint during the eight years of their 
issue. Tavernier who visited the court of Aurangzib in the middle 
of the seventeenth century, was the first to report the pretty legend 
that Niir-Jahdn, the Emperor's gifted wife, begged her adoring 
husband to allow her twenty -four hours of supreme sovereignty, 
and , on obtaining his consent , immediately issued the celebrated 
zodiacal coins, having previously had the necessary bullion collected 
and the dies engraved with her own name and that of the Emperor. 
The story is refuted by the zodiacal coins themselves : they do not, 
as a rule, bear Nur-Jdhdn's name; and instead of being all of one 
date, and issued within twenty four hours, they are spread over 
eight years. Jahdngir's own account of the origin of these pieces is 
doubtless correct and authentic. He says in his Memoirs, "For- 
merly it was customary to strike my name on one side of the coin,

nnd that of the place, and the month, and the year of the reign, on 
the obverse. It now occurred to my mind that, instead of the name 
of the month, the figure of the sign of the zodiac corresponding to 
the particular month, should be stamped. For instance, in the 
month of Fanvardin , the figure of a ram , in Ardibihist that of a 
bull, and so on; that is, in every month in which a coin might be 
struck, the figure of the constelfation in which the sun might be at 
the time, should be impressed on one side of it. This wms my ow^n 
innovation : it had never been done before." 



The British Museum possesses an unrivalled series ot these 
zodiacal issues. It includes a complete set of all the zodiacal si^rns 
in genuine mohrs, with several varieties of each sign, in all forly- 
three specimens; seven signs (fourteen coins) of the silver zodiacal 
rupees in which a complete set of the signs is not known to exist; 
ten gold and one silver specimens of mediaeval forgeries, and a 
complete series of the signs in modern imitation half-rupees. Some 
of the signs are rarer than others, and Aquarius is especially rare in 
both metals. The figures of the various signs, combined with the 
solar rays, as a rule agree with their traditional representation. The 
ram, humped bull, embracing twins, crab, lion, scales, scorpion, 
centaur, Capricorn, and two fish present no special peculiarities. But 
Virgo appears in three different forms on the genuine mohrs; first 
as the traditional standing winged figure with ear of corn ; secondly 
as a sQuatting woman with a braid of hair down her back, —a typic- 
al Indian figure; and thirdly, as a woman with a pitcher on her 
head, who might be described as a female Aquarius; and a fourth 
form, of a dancing girl, appears on one of the forged mohrs. 
Aquarius is represented as an old man with a pitcher of water or 
by the pitcher alone. ' 

The zodiacal coins, both gold and silver, have always attracted 
much attention and emulation among collectors. The Hindus after 
a time came to regard them as talismans, to be worn prophylactic- 
ally round the neck, and English ladies have not despised them as 
ornaments. They have consequently been extensively forged , and 
feW' collections exist which do not contain some of these imitations. 
A distinction, however, must be drawn between different classes of 
these forgeries. There is (i) a small class of gold zodiacal mohrs 
which are clearly ancient, and in spite of their rude workmanship 
and the peculiar forms of the zodiacal signs, may not be forgeries at 
all but merely trial-pieces of Jahangir's time. On the whole, 
1 believe them to be almost contemporary imitations. Then (2) 
there are more recent forgeries, distinguished by a certain cru- 
deness and sharpness in the drawing and execution of the fiaures 
and a tendency to blunder in the Persian inscriptions; and there is 
but one silver forgery of this class. In the representation of Virgo, 
the forgeries show, besides the usual type, a curious figure of a 
dancing woman, which does not occur on any genuine mohr at 
present known. Finally (3), there is a class of modern half-rupees, 
which, unlike the first two classes, can never have been intended 
to pass as counterfeit money, but must have been either an avowedly 
new currency, or else intended merely as ornaments. They are 



struck from the same dies as the imitation gold mohrs, or from dies 
closely resembling them ; and thus bearing inscriptions peculiar to 
mohrs, and not borne by rupees, would have been immediately 
detected. They were probably struck to please somebody's fancy, 
and tradition ascribes them to a Frenchman, Colonel Martin, 
well known in the history of the Company's power in India; but 
Marsden denies this, on the authority ot the Colonel's personal 
friends. 

In spite of general indications in the style and fabric, there is 
often considerable difliiculty in distinguishing the imitation from the 
genuine mohrs, and numismatists are frequently found to differ in 
their decisions. In distinguishing the British Museum forgeries, the 
late Mr. James Gibbs' experience has proved of value.

We publish an illustration of a Sceatta resembling that figured in 
the M. B. Anglo-saxon Cat., pi. iv, n° 6. There is a slight variation 
in detail both on the obverse and reverse. The coin is of extremely 
uncommon occurrence and may interest Collectors of this early 
series. It was in the Collection of the late T. W. Robinson and was 
said to have been found in the Thames.

AN UNPUBLISHED MEDAL OF THE 12th REG^ (FOOT) 

The Regimental medal now illustrated, we believe, for the first 
time, is an interesting memento of the heroic and successful 
struggle made by the 12*'' and other regiments for the retention of 
the Gibraltar Rock during the momentous years, 1778-1783. 

This Regiment (now the Suffolk) was raised in the year 1661 
from an independent company, commanded by the Duke of Nor- 
folk. During Monmouth's reoellion other companies were added 
and the regiment was complete by the year 1685 and under the 
command of the Earl of Lichfield. 

It will be understood that space hardly permits of more than the 
briefest outHne of the numerous services rendered to the country by 
this ancient regiment-services extending over two hundred years. It 



goes without saying that it has been in active service all over the 
world. The following list of the Campaigns, Battles, &c. (as given 




by Captain Trimen) in which the Twelfth has been engaged will 
prove to be of interest. 

BOYNE, 1690 GUADALOUPE, 1 7 94 

AUGHRIM, 1691 NIMEGUEN, 1 794 

FLANDERS, 1694-1697 GUILDERMALSEN, I795 

DETTINGEN, I743 FLANDERS, I794-I795 

FONTENOY, I745 MALLAVELLY, I799 

FLANDERS, I742-I745 SERINGAPATAM, I799 

MINDEN, 1759 INDIA, I798-1807 

DENKERN, I761 BOURBON, 181O 

WILHELMSTAHL, I762 MAURITIUS, 1 8 10 

GERMANY, I758-I765 CAPE OF GOOD HOPE, 1 85 I -1 85 3 

GIBRALTAR, I779-I783 NEW ZEALAND, 1863-1866 
MARTINIQUE, 1 794 

Although the Tw^elfth fought hard in many a battle (notably at 
Fontenoy (1745) when its loss in men exceeded that of any other 
regiment in the field; and at Seringapatam where it captured 8 
stand of colours) it is to its record at the furious siege of Gibraltar 
that it turns with pride; for from that time it has borne upon its 
colours. *^ The Castle and key '* (the arms of Gibraltar) with the 
motto '* Montis Insignia Calbe'' — a well-deserved and honourable 
distinction to which it had every claim as the senior regiment 
amongst those employed in the gallant defence. 

The following is a description of the unique medal we have 
illustrated : — 

Obverse, The Castle and sculptured key of Gibraltar, to the left of 
which is a mounted cannon, and to the right a man of w^ar roun- 
ding the point. Below, is the motto MONTIS INSIGNIA CALPE 
inscribed upon a ribbon. Above, a trophy of flags and arms, upon 
which is placed an oval tablet bearing the regimental number, 12. 

Reverse, Wreath of bav, within which is inscribed in four lines, 
NOVEMBER 2f^ 178^ SEPTEMBER ly^^ 1782. Beneath the 
wreath the word, GIBRALTAR. 

The medal is of silver, somewhat thin, with a thicker outer rim; 
and is entirely engraved by hand, which would account for its 
extreme rarity. 

The dates upon the medal refer especially to the two great 
repulses which the besiegers sustained at the hands of the garrison 
in the years 1781 and 1782 — the former commemorating the 
destruction in one night of the floating batteries of the enemy, 
including also their whole line of works, involving them in the loss 
of munitions of war estimated to be worth upwards of £ 2,000,000 
sterling. The grand sortie was made by General Elliott, and 40,000 
men were defeated. 

The later date (13 Sept. 1782) refers to the great repulse of the 
Spaniards by the small garrison of 7,000 men, which, skilfully 
throwing red-hot shot amongst the shipping gained a glorious 
victory against enormous odds and in the teeth of a terrinc bom- 
bardment from considerably more than a thousand guns, handled 
by picked troops under the command of the Due de Crillon. 

The blockade ceased the following year. 

This interesting relic of the great siege is now in the possession 
of D. H. Irwin Esq.

large number of

pieces, all dated 
Germany. 



Numismatists, or coin collectors, have interesting objects of 
search in two coins which belong to the transition period between 
the French republic and the second empire. One of these is an 
extremely rare coin which was struck off just at the moment of the 
assumption of the reins of the empire by Napoleon III. Only the die 
for the obverse or head of a new imperial coin had been completed, 
and by some accident or possibly by mischievous design, a coin 
was struck off which bore the head of ** Napoleon III., Emperor", 
on one side, and *' French Republic", on the other. 

This contradictory coin is of interest to others than numismatists, 
for it symbolises in a striking way the many sudden changes w^iich 
have taken place in French politics in the past century. 

With the other coin a singular story is connected. While Louis 
Napoleon was *' prince-president ", and just before he made himself 
emperor, a decree was issued ordering a five-franc piece to be coined 
bearing his image. 

The dies were made, and the coin was struck off as a sample and 
sent to the prince-president for approval. But some time passed 
before he examined it. When at last he gave it his attention he was 
annoyed to find that he had been represented on the coin with a 
'' love lock " or hooked lock of hair on the temple, which he did 
actually wear at that period, but which he thought unsuitable to so 
dignified and permanent a representation of himself as an effigy 
upon a coin. 

The prince-president sent for the director of the mint and ordered 
him to remove the *' love lock ". Then he found that his silence 
with legard to the piece had been taken for approval, and that the 
stamping of the coins had commenced. 

The work was stopped and the image deprived of its undignified 
lock, but the twenty-three coins that had already been struck off 
were not destroyed, and are now regarded as of great value.

De remploi vicieux des termes numismatiques

reproduis ici en partie :

'' Me permettez-vous. Monsieur, en raison de mon grand age, 
de vous adresser line petite observation. Je d^sirerais qu'un Diction- 
naire comme le votre, qui va ^tre dans les mains d*un grand 
nombre de travailleurs ne contribufit pas i r^pandre Tusage de deux 
mots techniques qui ne sont pas logiques. 

** Avers est la traduction exacte du mot allemand Ruchciie, Les 
arch^ologues qui, comme Tillustre Eckhel ^crivent en bon latin, 
emploient Texpression aversa pars pour exprimer notre mot revers. 
L'ancien mot tran<;ais droit, pour dire la face opposie au revers, est 
toujours en usage, et il n'y a aucune raison pour lui substituer le 
mot avers qui a le sens contraire. Le mot anglais obvers serait le 
plus regulier pour remplacer le mot vicieux avers. 

** II en est de mfime en ce qui concerne le mot '* Nuwismate'' et 
qu'il faut, une fois pour toutes, remplacer par le| mot ** Numisma- 
tiste ", car le mot numismate est un substantif simple, au premier 
degri, qui represente " nutniswata, monnaies. Numismatiste offre en 
plus un suffixe d'a^ent, comme artiste, legiste, linguiste ; c'est un 
substantif au second degr^, qui rend parfaitement le role de Thomme 
qui traite des monnaies. *' 

II serait aussi grandement temps de remplacer le mot '* medaiUe^' 
par celui de " monnaie ", car le mot m^daille ne signifie qu'une 
grande pi^ce italienne du temps de la Renaissance, ou toute autre 
pi^ce commemorative n'ayant pas eu cours comme moyen d'ichange 
dans le commerce.

Un lapin numismate. — Les journaux du Midi ont racont^ der- 
nitrement une aventure assez plaisante arrivee i deux chasseurs, 
dans un bois des environs de Montauban : lis poursuivaient des 
lapins, aui se refugiaient dans des trous, lorsque Tun d'eux, 
ayant prooablement rencontr^ quelque obstacle, s'^langa au dehors 
et fit tomber une grosse motte de terre, d'ou s*ichapperent plusieurs 
pieces d'or... Les chasseurs ^bahis laisserent courir le lapin, et en 
fouillant au m^me endroit, trouverent une centaine d*autres pieces 
dor, aux effigies de Louis XIII et de Louis XIV, d'une valeur totale 
d'environ 2,500 fr. (ioo€)... Conform^ment a la loi, et sur la 
reclamation du propriitaire du sol, ce tr^sor fut partag^ entre lui et 
les chasseurs. Quant au lapin, principal auteur de la trouvaille, on 
pent dire qu'il en profita ^galement, puisqu'en jetant ainsi de la 
poudre d'or aux yeux de ses poursuivants, il avait pu prendre la cl6

CORRESPONDENCE 

To the Editor of the Numismatic Circular 

A UNIQUE COIN OF ATHENS 

Sir, 

I have in my possession, a pentadrachm of Athens, weight 335 
grains. As this coin appears to be unique, a brief mention of it may 
interest your readers. It is of the usual type of the early coins of 
Athens, but the head on the obverse side, in accordance with the 
extra size of the coin, is much larger than are those upon early 
tetradrachms. The crown of the helmet is perfectly plain, without 
any ornamentation except one simple convolution at the base; and 
the hair is formed of dots representing curls as on the head of a 
negro. The eye, like all those on very early coins, is not in profile, 
and the jaw is very massive. The reverse has the owl, two olive 
leaves and a berry, and AOE. 

I have been unable to find a pentadrachm of Athens mentioned in 
any numismatic work; though Thucydides speaks of fortieths of 
Chios, which were half pentadrachms ; and Xenophon refers to a 
pentadrachm of Chios; which city was, in his time, a member of 
the Athenian league. 

Yours faithfully, 
Geo. Washington Moon, Hon. F. K. S. L.

NUMISMATIC SOCIETIES, MUSEUMS, &c. 

Numismatic Society of London. — April 20, — Sir J. Evans, Pre- 
sident, in the chair. — Mr. H. Virtue was elected a Member. — 
Mr. Montagu exhibited a selection from his own cabinet of beauti- 
fully preserved gold and silver coins bearing the portraits of Ptolemy 
Philadelphus and Arsinoe II, and on the reverse those of Ptolemy 
Soter and Berenice I. Among them were a magnificent gold octa- 
drachm of Arsinoe II., and a gold tetradrachm of the same queen, 
probably struck at a considerably later date. The silver coins shown 
by Mr. Montagu were a decadrachm of Arsinoe and a specimen of 
the excessively rare tetradrachm, both evidently struck during her 
lifetime. — Sir J. Evans exhibited seven silver and copper coins of 
the present Gaikwar of Baroda, bearing his name and titles, one of 
which, which may be translated "Commander of the Sovereign's 
Tribe ", dates from 173 i, when the second member of the Gaikwar 
family held a military command under the Governor of Gujarat. 
Another title, ** Lord of the Sword", is characteristic of Baroda 
coins. The obverses of all the silver coins bear the head of the 
Gaikwar, and those of the copper the word "Sarkar" ("The 
Government") over a horse's hoof and a sword. Sir J. Evans also 
exhibited an imitation of one of Akbar's square rupees, such as are 
now often worn in India as charms, and as are used in native society 
as complimentary presents given on paying or receiving visits. — 
Lord Grantley exhibited a new variety of a bronze coin of Theo- 
dahatus, a.d. 534-536: obverse, d.n. theodahatus rex, crow^ned 
bust witlmit beard; reverse, victoria prinxipvm. Victory on prow; 
also a brass coin of Childebert I., King of Paris, ad. 511-558, the 
oldest piece of money of the Merovingian kings, together wdth gold 
coins of Childebert II. , King of Paris, and of St. Eloi, the famous 
goldsmith and minister of Dagobert I., who was elected Bishop of 
Noyon about a.d. 640. — Mr. L. A. Lawrence exhibited a penny 
of Coenwulf, struck at Canterbury, and a groat of Edward IV., with

his crown very much on one side of his head; also a forgery of a 
silver coin of Philip and Mary struck on a later coin, probably of 
Brabant. — Mr. W. Wroth read a paper on the Greek coins acquired 
by the British Museum in 1892. Among the more remarkable 
specimens were a silver coin of Dica^a in Macedon with Euboean 
types, a fine gold stater of Demetrius Poliorcetes, a tetradrachm of 
Pnarnabazus with a beautiful portrait of that satrap on the obverse, 
a coin of Abd Sasan (an unknown governor of the town of Sinope in 
the fourth centuiy B.C.), a Lampsacene stater with the head of 
Acta^on, and a Lycian silver stater of archaic style, bearing the name 
of Spintaza, supposed by some to have been a Lycian dynast who 
lived in the earlier half of the fifth century B.C.
